I just returned from Denver,Colorado.
Celebrated my grandsons 10th birthday, twelve days of adventure away from home.
On one of my 3 hour walks I came across this raccoon in a tree, in daylight hours!
I don't really like raccoons, but…
reason being one got in our home several years ago, I won't go on…
At any rate he was there...
I made these cream puffs for my grandson.
He didn't want a cake or a pie, he has unique requests.
His mom said "go for it".
and I did...
They are pretty common I know.
But I like seeing the black and white contrast of them in flight.
I called them in on my iPhone app, which was interesting as I hid in a tree.
then I moved on…
This was the terrain I was walking.
Across the street from my sons home.
I love trees...
They are the essence of my walks.
Last December I took this same photo and they were covered with snow.
