Delivering the goods. Bringing home the bacon. Making hay.
A girl can’t just live high on the hog (first time in three years we’re living somewhere
other than the van) without a little exchange of services. Get your minds out the gutter! We’re talking manual labor people. Alright. Alright. This is not going as planned so, here’s the pictures instead.
Although by this time we have spent several days getting oriented to opening, working and closing the visitor center, this was our first official day working out on the refuge proper. It was a wonderful day and the weather was just perfect. We always appreciate being given the opportunity to work independently out in the field. Although the work wasn’t terribly difficult it did involve some wrangling to avoid blood-loss. Happy to say that we both escaped with only a few minor pokes and a tad bit of dehydration. Yes, we had forgotten that we were back in ‘dry’ country and did not bring enough water. Lesson learned. We now carry at least an extra gallon with us on every outing.
Stay tuned...next we’ll head out toward Los Pinos Mountains to play in the grass!
