Serene Scenery Sunday

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie!  Remember last weekend, we told you we went on a really cool adventure?  We showed you the Gingerbread Village, and said there would be more of our trip to come!  Mom finally finished processing everything, so we thought we'd share a handful of the photos with you today!

The most abundant birdies were Red-Tailed Hawks, like this handsome fellow:


They were all over the place, but don't sit still very long.


We also saw a lot of Northern Harriers, but only in flight:


Mostly what we saw at the refuge was this:


Gorgeous, but where are the birdies?!? So ... we decided to take the long way home and see what we could see!

After our stop at the Gingerbread Village, we were headed to a lookout by Cheyenne Bottoms - another wildlife refuge. We stopped in the small town of Claflin -- as one of the signs for their town reads, "Claflin. If you can't stop, smile as you go by." That always does make us smile!

Here's what we found in Claflin!




It was really a fun step back in time - and a great place to explore!

The scenic overlook gave us a really cool vantage point to see Cheyenne Bottoms -- WAY out in the distance:


It was a very fun, different trip!

In unrelated news, since Mom forgot to get pictures of us girls (I know -- what was she thinking?!?!), here we are, helping down in Mom's Studio:

"Cammie!  Cammie!  Cammie!  Are you done with your Pickle?  Can I have it?"
"Pickle?  What Pickle?!?"

I hope you enjoyed a look at our trip!  For more photos, please visit our album on FlickR.
