20-Feb-2012Dead baby squirrel on the side of the road
Was out walking the dogs and came across this little guy. Looks like he’d been mauled. A patch of skin was torn off his scalp, and there were scrape (or bite) marks all over his body.
16-Jan-2012Dayhike: Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge

03-Jan-2012Using a CD as a signaling mirror
Quick demonstration of how to use a CD as a signaling mirror. I suspect many people, especially survivalist/outdoorsy types, are familiar with this method, but I wanted to see how well it works for myself by aiming it at my iPhone. Works pretty good!
