Lovely stuff as usual, and good to hear from you on The Farm. Unfortunately, while I was approving its publication, Google ate it. I'll keep looking. I did get your response to my last post, and replied with suggestions but don't know if that got to you. I did think of you on our way through Eugene!

I enjoyed the photos, especially that very first one, of the geese. We are beginning to see flocks of birds with the changing season.

Enjoy your travels! It is nice to see some of your older photos.


How wonderful to read that you are heading out on yet another adventure, Sallie and will be seeing more wonderful places. Looking forward to seeing future posts as well. Certainly reading fellow bloggers posts is way better than TV watching too. Thanks for your comments on my posts. To answer your question, yes, Grenville is a ham radio operator, a recent addiction.

A stunning series of nature photos, Sallie.

Love them all.

I am little behind on visiting, but so glad I did! Beautiful photos. The first one is so striking, gorgeous colours and silhouette. Safe and happy travels!!



Thank you for your nice comment at least on my Post. It's really lovely in this season between Summer and Autumn. We love this so much. Why? It's the time to say good bye to Sunny spells, white trousers, T-Shirts ... being in the Garden.

One another sentence to my recipe.

If there are too much tomatoe Juice on the
Geschmorten Tomaten
ladle up a cup of the liquid. This Juice we put into the refrigator for other cooking. Of course.

Guten Appetit... Bon Appétit 🥰 🥂🍾

Have a good week. Happy MosaicMonday

I love your photos, Sallie. The one of the fly over is my favorite. Have a nice journey and a fun time. Stay safe and enjoy your travels.

The spoonbill is a splash of color. Safe travels and photo safaris!

I'm from New Mexico and am ashamed to say that I have never been to Bosque Del Apache. My loss!!!


"no wildlife sightings" sounds like my place. Not because of fall coming but because of forests beeing cut down and a summer with almost no birds. In spring the birds came to early and there was no food for them so they continued up north :( Bad for me, good for others.
It is good to see your images.


Love every photo you shared - all so beautiful!

My Corner of the World

I love your favorites!

Thanks for sharing your link at My Corner of the World this week!

A beautiful collection of wildlife. Love the Rosate Spoon Bills.


Not much better than taking a road trip.

Hello Sallie, Your memory photos are always a pleasure to see. Love your first photo of the Snow Geese and Sand-hill cranes, and the Spoon bills, and also the larger creatures in the Rocky Mountains National Park.

Enjoy your trip,I don't watch TV either, nor do I miss it. Stay safe, and enjoy every moment of your adventure.:=)


I love your memory photos. We've been to the refuges in Florida, and would love to go to Bosque del Apache some day. I'll try to write amusing blog posts to keep you happy while you live without TV!

Beautiful selection of memories. Hope you can make more soon.

Hello Sallie,
What a great critter post! It feels good to be able to travel, we can still travel and be safe. I love the moose and Rocky Mtn NP. We have been to Corkscrew a few times, it is a great place to see the Florida birds. The Spoonbill is a favorite. The first photo is stunning. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, safe travels. Have a great weekend! PS, thank you for leaving me a comment.

Wonderful bird & wildlife photos. I watch very little television, so understand that you won’t miss it. Wishing you a great roadtrip!

Greetings and Salutations! Awesome first image!


Great wildlife pictures !

Beautiful skies.

I love those Colorado photos. Amazing how the moose can stand in what looks like freezing water to casually feed!

Jim, Sydney, Australia

Beautiful shots.

On the road again! I always love the juxtaposition of the Northwest wildlife and the deep south. I can only handle a road trip that long about once every 10 years!

Penelope Notes

Your first photo is breathtaking and so freeing. Traveling minus a television set sounds like double the fun, Sallie, and a better way to enjoy the journey!

Iris Flavia

That first pic is really outstanding!


Always enjoy these great photos Sallie, thank you and have a great road trip.

ellen b.

Enjoy visiting and seeing the new location and 'digs'. Happy travels to you!


I love that first photo of the cranes and geese.


I have an iPad app for playing TV stations and one for radio stations. These are apps to download in Uk., but are there an in US.

Linda W

I enjoyed these pictures. Stay safe!


Safe travels and I look forward to your photos of the trip. The first shot here is breath taking!

William Kendall

Beautiful shots. Here we are seeing some fall colours.


All shots are lovely, Sallie but that first photo could win a prize! Amazing! We visited the same refuge on a trio back from AZ through New Mexico. It was a very interesting place to visit.
Enjoy your travels--stay safe and healthy!

The Rosette spoonbill is my favorite bird here in Florida! We went out looking for birds yesterday and it felt great. I'll be glad when the weather cools off some though! Hugs!

Gillena Cox

Appreciate the oldies. I am at #18 on the linky today



Enjoy your trip! Have a great time with the CO "kids". Will miss your blogs, safe travels.

Juliet (craftygreenpoet)

Have a lovely trip! Your photos are very pretty, specially the roseate spoonbill


Love the photo of the Geese, I tried to comment earlier hope this is not a dupe cause I can't recall exactly what I said...lol duh.
I hope your trip to CO is good!!


HI Sallie, there is very little on TV worth watching when I put it on the volume is normally put to mute, I hope you enjoy your travels to CO... and beyond? I love the top photo of the geese flying into the Golden sky. Stay safe and enjoy!

Reading about Eugene, I searched this area on the map. It's really a remarkable beautiful landscape. With many fantastisc animals and plants. Have a good time there.

Happy MosaicMonday
Hugs, Heidrun


Hello Sallie,

Love the photo taken at the Bosque Del Apache, great wildlife refuge. I have been there too. Corkscrew is another great place to visit and see the birds. Your Colorado images are wonderful, love the goat, moose and elk. Have a fun and safe trip. Take care, have a happy new week!

Amy Franks

I like what you've said about memories, every day there are new ones to make. We are pretty much the same as you with devices at night, there's not alot on tv as it is here, it's all rubbish.


Sallie - I love everything about that first photo - the light, the composition. Terrific!!! And of course, you know I love the moose photos! On this road trip, I got a little tired of taking pictures, and sometimes I just let myself enjoy the moments without having to document them. Imagine that! I hope you enjoy your travel - and stay safe. Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!


Hope this trip is more enjoyable than the mad dash you had to make to Eugene at the beginning of Covid. We will head down to Arizona to meet up with our RV stored there in mid-November. We agree, RVing is a safe way to enjoy travel and the outdoors, and photography. Enjoy. - Margy
