Almost every evening I say to Vince “Want to go for a ride on the RTV?” and his response is almost always the same . . nothing has changed since yesterday! But it just love riding around out there. Even though I had my camera, I wasn’t quick enough to get a picture of the wildlife we saw yesterday. Every time I see one of those huge jack rabbits, I tell myself that it was the biggest one I’ve ever seen but the one we saw yesterday may well have been the biggest one we’ve seen. I guess with all the green grass and almost adequate supply of water the jack rabbits are thriving this year. Later, we came up on a family of 5 or 6 deer. They ran but two more times, we caught a glimpse of them.
Someone asked me the other day how I keep from getting lost in the woods. We have trails cut. It’s pretty easy not to get lost. Every now and then I’ll get off the trail to get a closer look at something and then I have to think about which way to go but there are enough trails that I’ll come across one and even though I may not know exactly which way to turn, if I follow one of the main trails, I will get to a familiar spot. It’s kind of surprising for this city girl but 45 acres is not a big piece of ground and even with my uncanny ability to get lost, I don’t think I could get lost out here.
As we’re riding along, I’ll often say “Oh, this is a good spot for Chad and Nicole to build a house!” This was my pick from yesterday’s ride. A perfect spot for my grandchildren to grow up!
Yesterday was such a beautiful evening. It was a bit cloudy . . one of those days when I looked at the sky as we were driving away from the house, and thought . . I hope we get back before it rains, but it didn’t rain. Seeing so much green in early September is about the best thing folks in this area could imagine.
