Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Wonderful Wildlife

01 Merriam turkeys SR67 Kaibab NF AZ (1024x762)

Just never know what kind of wildlife might be seen driving through the forest.

02 Merriam turkeys SR67 Kaibab NF AZ (1024x683)

Young Merriam turkeys follow an adult.

03 Beefalo in road SR67 NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x757)

This lone beefalo didn’t know which side of the road to run to.

04 Golden eagle on carcass SR67 Kaibab NF AZ (1024x764)

At first I thought this was a stump critter.

05 Golden eagle SR67 Kaibab NF AZ (1024x779)

But I saw movement and stopped for a closer look.

06 Golden eagle SR67 Kaibab NF AZ (885x827)

My first golden eagle seen on the Kaibab Plateau.

I've never seen a golden eagle, at least not one I could ID with certainty. Lots of turkeys, though, sometimes wandering through my yard.
I love the videos of your runs through the rapids and the double rainbow is amazing.

How exciting to see a golden eagle! You always need to keep your eyes peeled when you're driving down the road because you never know what's going to pop up.

Isn't it wonderful when you meet the unexpected?
For turkeys, they are remarkably pretty birds and the bemused buffalo is a dear. Congrats on the eagle too.

Keep looking and snapping!

I've seen wild turkeys in the Kaibab forest a few times. They're always fun to spot, and really nice to get photos!
