Well, as some of you may know, Sabina went to Terry; I'm going to miss her but I'm glad she went to a good home.

Also, I went hiking at Ruffner Mountain (a nature reserve in Birmingham) today. I told myself I wasn't going to stay long, but I wound up hiking 4.1 miles. I saw tons of insects, but only one herp--it was either a five lined skink or a broad headed skink--I couldn't tell. I took some pictures at the largest quarry there.

Thank goodness i thought there was something wrong with me or gravity had turned the UK upside down. Lovely place though. Was this one of the 4 days a year the sun shines?

Sorry there is something wrong with me i got my countries mixed up. I do know the sun shines more than 4 days a year there in the good old USA. You possibly only saw 1 reptile because the Python Hunters had come through there? They are getting desperate.

Haha. Maybe that's why. But I think it was just that I went to the mountainous part of the reserve rather than the wetlands. I will be going back soon though. I can't wait for fall though, when all the leaves start to change colors. Did I mention I saw a rabbit? He let me get pretty close before running off.

Seeing a rabbit at least showed you there is some wildlife around. Come here and a walk in the mountains is sure to include sighting of buck and if you lucky a leopard.

I just got back from the Adirondacks in Northern NY and I saw a fawn up pretty close. We also got to see black cougar; one of the biggest kitty cats I have ever seen outside of a zoo! Beautiful!!

My dad said that his house got flooded this week; but they live right on a bayou, which is awesome, even if their house does get flooded occasionally!
