|BEAUTIFUL MORNING FOR A SLOW DRIVE AROUND THE AUTO ROUTE|
|THE FIRST OF MANY BIRDS WE WERE TO SEE|
|WE TOOK A QUICK HEAD COUNT AND ESTIMATED ABOUT 66.3 MILLION BIRDS:)) I HAVE MANY MORE BIRD PHOTOS BUT COULDN'T INCLUDE THEM ALL|
|WE KNEW THIS TO BE A REALLY NICE TRAIL SO DECIDED TO WALK IT AGAIN|
|TRAIL GOES IN TO THE RIGHT OF THE READER BOARD, LOOPS AROUND, AND COMES OUT TO THE LEFT OF THE WASHROOM|
|NO DOGS ALLOWED ON THE TRAIL SO I WALKED IT FIRST WHILE KELLY STAYED WITH PHEEBS AT THE TRAIL HEAD|
|THIS IS A REALLY NICE EASY WALKING AND WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE TRAIL|
|A LOT OF BIG COTTONWOOD TREES ALONG THE TRAIL|
|THIS IS A FEW STEPS OFF THE MAIN TRAIL ALONG A BERM|
|BACK ON THE TRAIL|
|AT THE END OF THIS SIDE PATH ON THE LEFT IS A BENCH WHERE ONE CAN SIT QUIETLY AND LISTEN TO THE CHATTERING OF SURROUNDING BIRDS|
|CANADA GEESE AND THAT ONE CHAP APPEARS TO BE MISSING A FEW WING FEATHERS|
|THAT BIRD VIEWING STATION OUT THERE OVERLOOKS A POND FULL OF MALLARD DUCKS|
|MY APPROACHED STIRRED THEM UP|
|A NICE BIRD VIEWING STAND|
|HERE YOU CAN SEE OVERNIGHT'S FROST GLISTENING ON A READER BOARD|
|I SCRAPED A BIT ICE ASIDE|
|AND IT'S WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE TOO STU:))|
|THIS WHOLE AREA IS LACED WITH CONTROLLABLE IRRIGATION|
|RESTING BENCHES ALONG THE WAY|
|AFTER I RETURNED TO THE TRAILHEAD KELLY DID THE WALK WHILE I STAYED WITH PHEEBS|
|PHEEBS WAITS PATIENTLY FOR KELLY TO RETURN FROM HER WALK|
|YAAAAAY THERE SHE COMES|
|A VERY HAPPY LITTLE DOGGY|
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Okay, so a Texan rancher comes upon a farmer from Maine. The Texan looks at the Mainer and asks, "Say, how much land you think you got here?" Mainer: 'Bout 10 acres I'd say." Texan (boasting): Well, on my lot, it takes me all day to drive completely around my property!" Mainer: "Yep, I got one of them trucks too."
Wife: "What are you doing?"
"Wife: "Nothing? You've been reading our marriage certificate for an hour.
"Husband: "I was looking for the expiration date."
- Did you hear about the new restaurant that just opened up on the moon? Great food, but no atmosphere.
- What has four legs, is big, green, fuzzy, and if it fell out of a tree would kill you?
A pool table.
- What did the pig say at the beach on a hot summer's day? "I'm bacon!"
Different ways to say your not so bright::
A few fries short of a Happy Meal.
A few beers short of a six-pack.
Dumber than a box of hair.
A few peas short of a casserole.
Doesn't have all her cornflakes in one box.
One Fruit Loop shy of a full bowl.
One taco short of a combination plate.
A few feathers short of a whole duck.
All foam, no beer.
Body by Fisher, brains by Mattel. .
An intellect rivaled only by garden tools.
As smart as bait. Chimney's clogged.
