Wildlife bridges WORK!






I saw this video and was heartened that this bridge was created in Utah.  I hear one is going to be made in Southern CA.  I sure hope so.  They need a few in Nevada, too.  These should be everywhere.

The DOT and researchers at Utah State University have been monitoring the new system ever since. And, it appears to be working remarkably well.

For two years, the Parleys Canyon Wildlife Overpass has allowed critters to stroll and sprint across I-80 without having to worry about the fast cars down below. The overpass is covered in rocks and logs to make the animals feel right at home, and it’s got high fencing to make sure they don’t accidentally tumble off.

SATURDAY IS PHOBLOG DAY!






WELL, it may be the last Saturday (or any day…) that I get to work for a while… since CA is being shut down (our area is fine, yet we are grouped with Southern CA).  I’m not happy about having to close down.  Not at all.  They said ‘two weeks’ last time, and it ended up being 5 months.

HERE WE GO!

Gorgeous wild one.

Interesting.

Boys will be boys.

So pretty.

So sweet.

Yup. I saw a beach.

That face!

It was IMPOSSIBLE to take Christmas pics of my puppies. We had Santa hats but those were off in seconds. I tried with bows but they chewed on them and played and wouldn’t sit still. This was the best shot and it is pretty bad. (Vivey and Natty)

This is a dog that needs a home in Oregon. I thought she looked like she was smiling for the cameras. (Google search the image to find her)

Perfectly timed shot.

An amazing shot by Kat Livengood.

Christmas Illusion.

Gorgeous.

God shot.

HAVE A VERY LOVELY WEEKEND!
