Abandoned Alaskan Bears in New Home

I come from a huge city, I am use to having 2 major zoos and an aquarium. I have seen everything from dolphins to beluga whales to koala and giraffe. My new hometown has a zoo that you can probably walk through in 15 minutes if you take your time. Last year however something wonderful happened. Two Kodiak bear cubs were abandoned and rescued in Alaska and somehow our tiny zoo got together big companies with money to build a state of the art habitat for them….the kind of things the ‘big name’ zoos have. Their habitat includes two huge areas connected by a bridge that they can walk over and people can walk under. One has a small pool and the other has trees and grass and a huge swimming hole in good weather. As they were just lazing around the other day, my friend just took this one photo for me. But here they are, the stars of the Wildwood Park and Zoo….Munsey and Boda. They were named after two of the men who rescued them. Sometimes their IS a happy ending to stories 🙂

Welcome to Jurustic Park

In my hometown in North Central Wisconsin, there is a person who has taken old scrap metal etc. and fashioned them into wonderful creatures. Most of these pieces are in a little place they have called Jurustic Park. However, they have donated many of the pieces to places in my hometown. My friend captured this wonderful dragon with an old phone…pre iPhone. This beauty lives on one of the main streets. I really love this dragon and hope you do too!

Setting Sun Behind A Cloud

I am very proud of this photo taken in Marshfield, Wisconsin though I did not take the photo.  The photo was taken by a good friend of mine. I am proud of it because on a whim I submitted it to a local weatherman’s Facebook page as he posts viewers photos on the weather portion of the news. A couple of hours after submitting it, he posted it on the 10pm news! In addition, it was posted on the station’s Facebook page where it got more likes than any other photo they have posted!  My thanks to my friend for the use of his photo and once again….congrats on your photo being chosen for the news!

Farewell to Fall Pt 3…a fond farewell to fall 2013

Well here it is, the best of fall 2013 in Wisconsin. The weather this year made a rather dull one color wise but hopefully you have enjoyed the beauty that WAS to be found. I will see you when winter rolls into full force and there are some beautiful snow photos. Thanks for looking and thanks to the photographer!

I wonder if this lone colored tree was lonely for long

Somehow it doesn’t seem right to have snow and fall colors at the same time!
