Tyrael is one of the stray cats that I adopted through my rescue work. I love this picture of him... he is such a handsome boy!

I had a happy guest in my garden this morning... he sure was enjoying these black eyed susans!

this little guy wasn't camera shy at all!

here he is again, from the front

don't mind the colors...

I'm in the process of working on a "blog-makeover," so don't mind the colors for now, ok? >^..^<

bike ride

Some photos from tonight's bike ride.

a bridge on the bike path

ferns along the trail

the hill I ride up alongside the locks in the canal. The photo doesn't make it look nearly as steep as it really is!

bird watching

I got a bird feeder to entertain the cats... so far it looks like it's working!

lost comments!

Well, I installed Haloscan on my blog so I could track my comments more easily, and it erased all of the comments to date! How disappointing!

rescued cats

I have been rescuing cats for about 5 years. Here are some photos of some of my extra special rescues:











Prospect Mountain hike

We climbed Prospect Mountain on Sunday June 10th (2005). Here are some of my photos from the hike:

the trail starts here...

a long walk over the highway to get to the mountain

Saturday's rain made for a slick climb in places

although not everybody minded!

I put my finger right on this slimy slug before I saw him.

orange mushroom

a felled tree

goldenrod growing behind a rock

it was pretty steep in places (Neuro on the trail)

but the view from the top was definitely worth it.

Neuro and I got new mountain bikes this summer and I am already addicted. I've been riding 4 or 5 times a week at a minimum. I am fortunate to have access to some great trails only about a block from my house.

the bike path runs alongside this canal

We have encountered all sorts of critters in our travels... here are a few that held still long enough to let me snap some photos:

snapping turtle

caterpillar - a luna moth to be, perhaps?

butterfly - Eastern Tiger Swallowtail
