Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving of course, is all about being grateful for what we have in our lives, be it people or things. It has also become a holiday embracing the notion of stuffing our faces with food. In that spirit, I offer the following images from the Bosque del Apache to draw inspiration upon. Happy Thanksgiving all!

Views from Bosque del Apache NWR

I just got back from the Festival of the Cranes at the Bosque del Apache NWR. This was my first time to this festival and refuge and it was a spectacular experience. The ambiance of this place is undeniably stunning. I've got a few more posts about this place/event but am still catching up on work/family stuff. I've been out of town 18 days since the beginning of this month! More posts to come on my recent trip to the tropics as well. In the meantime, enjoy these views from the Bosque!
Hundreds of Snow geese lift off.

Can you find the hidden digiscoper?



There were White-crowned Sparrows everywhere around the visitor center.




A sliver of moon hangs in the sky as morning begins.





Digiscoping way too early in the morning.


Gambel's Quail in the sage.


Ferruginous Hawk.


Geese and ducks coming in at dusk.

Wow, that was a lot of fun!

My wife and I returned home from our Central American cruise on Tuesday and are trying to adjust back to our normal life. We had a fantastic time and I will try and post many stories and photos here, once I catch up with work, etc...
In the meantime, enjoy this zip-line canopy tour from Corcovado, Costa Rica.
