The End


  1. Wow! Pretty impressive! I'm always surprised at how many things I see when I really look. This year I got a mushroom book and suddenly I'm seeing mushrooms everywhere!

  2. And look at where you have been! Envy, envy, envy.

  3. Hey, I recognize that javelina!
    It ran from our site into that of some woman camping by herself in a little white van.
    Later we ran into her at the observatory.

    Great collection of photos!

    1. Don! So good to hear from you! Your sweet wife was the one who called my attention to the javelinas. BTW, I left my door open while I walked around photographing them. I'm convinced that's when I picked up my unwanted passenger - that mouse that drove with me to Ft. Stockton and then Fredericksburg.

  4. Jeez, you've seen a lot in one year, and so many different kinds of critters, large and small. Just beautiful - thanks for the photos, I really enjoyed seeing them all. Amazing, isn't it? And people think we're crazy. :)

  5. Nice shots and memories! I should probably start working on my end of year post soon too.

  6. Obviously, it was a very good year. I hope your next year is as wonderful.

  7. Look at that cool! My wildlife collection is lacking...but catching some sun and beach right now. You have been so many places...what memories you are making and a life living such freedom...super cool!

  8. Great pictures, lots of variety and memories of all the places you have been this year.

  9. What wonderful memories!!! Awesome year!!

  10. Great pictures, and I'm sure a great memory to go with each one. You're going to have a lot of hard work ahead of you to top your travels of 2013.

  11. What a treasure trove of critter memories. Priceless! :)

  12. What a treasure trove of memories. Gorgeous photos. How many miles did you drive in 2013? Any idea?

  13. These are really really really cool! You saw some WONDERFUL wildlife in 2013! Looking forward to your adventures in 2014.
