My parents recently moved to Los Angeles and my sister and I have decided to take a road trip out to visit them. Along the way we plan on visiting the Grand Canyon as well as Rocky Mountain National Park. I have always been somewhat of an outdoorsman and cannot wait for the opportunity to experience the beauty of the western states. I am planning on camping and hiking at Rocky Mountain National Park. On the trip back we are also planning on visiting Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons, and possibly Mount Rushmore. This is going to be the trip of a lifetime.

I plan to take advantage of the trips they plan to hike in area parks and refuges to enjoy the outdoors, and when not able to do that, walk around my neighborhood and the University Lakes.

Crocuses, daffies, tulips and others are already well on their way, and some (crosuses) are blooming. We plan to spend lots of time expanding our vegetable garden and planting more perennials in our several flower beds. We also have strawberries which are outgowing their patch so we’ll have to expand that too. Love getting in the dirt and working with the soil! During the spring, summer and early fall we like to spend as much time as we an outside enjoying this beautiful world.

The darn strawberries are growing out onto the pavement and making a mess of my BMW.

I have also planned general trips to the park where there are several species of birds, trees, and squirrels! Unfortunately there haven’t been any beach trips planned as of yet; my child and I are enjoying the fishing more than the swimming this year.

I am keeping an eye on 3 cocoons that I don’t know what they will reveal. I will continue picking up the trash that others dump along my stretch of roadway and I will enjoy my birds and new growth every day.

But I still sleep near my open window for the fresher night air.

It is wheelchair accessible and you can see all kinds of birds. Also, box turtles, lizards, butterflies and dragonflies, fish and animals as large as bobcats and coyoties. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.
