For the Birds

It was a beautiful day for an afternoon drive. Sunshine provided warmth, yet puffy clouds shadowed the earth in huge spots and a cool breeze reminded us that it was still early spring. Since spring break is almost over and the eldest goes back college classes on Monday, we decided it was time for a last school-vacation adventure. We drove in one huge circle, spanning two hundred miles of high desert and out-of-the-way places. To us, any place off the 'beat and track' is so much more interesting than amusement parks and commercial sites. Our destination? A small town miles from anywhere with a population of 90 people and thousands of bluebirds!

  1. Well, here it is the crack of dawn, since I'm an early bird today. What a wonderful drive, I've often seen birdhouses in our travels and wondered what the stories are behind the kindly set out little houses.
