Weminuche Trip

I won't try to get myself bothered by squirrel haters any longer. Instead, it would be better for me to persue peace, beauty, and harmony. Which is partially why I signed up for a trip with the Sierra Club to the Colorado Rockies; more specifically the Weminuche Wilderness. I will be leaving by bus to go there next Thursday. I look forward to being surrounded by the pristine beauty of God's creation. I love to hike. I don't get tired after several miles, in fact, I'm kind of disappointed with the White Rock Creek trail in Dallas, which was "only" seven miles long. Needless to say I was looking for more trail after it ended. At Weminuche, I am looking forward to hiking for dozens of miles a day. I'm also longing to see and photograph squirrels I know about but never seen before. To see a list of squirrel species found in the Colorado Rockies, please refer to the archives of June 9 and 10.

Now that's the spirit. I love the outdoors as well. Skwerls are beautiful things when observed in their natural habitat meaning many miles from my home.

Whenever I camp, hike or fish I enjoy them very much. I remember a few rare moments observing them when they didn't recognize my presence which is rare as woodland skwerls are very savvy.

Enjoy yourself and remember that there is a place and time for all things.
