Clarksville, TN – I pulled out of the Iron Horse Inn at 5:30 on Friday morning. I had already apologized to my neighbors the night before about firing up “black beauty” that early the next morning. It was a cool, crisp morning and there was a “calm” in the air as I pulled out, on my way to Colorado Springs, Colorado.
It was there that I would rendezvous with friends I had met through this blog. After spending a couple of days there, I would then head over to Ouray, Colorado, where I would stay with friends for a couple of days.
Make no mistake about it, I LOVE COLORADO!

The destination for some of them would be present day Montgomery County, upon the Red River at the mouth of Passenger Creek. Yet, in order to arrive at their destination they had to guide their boats through a frontier full of Native Americans determined to attack them.

Nashville, TN – Luka, a 2-year old Andean bear, now calls Nashville Zoo home. The female bear arrived from Phoenix Zoo on Monday and is doing well in an off-exhibit quarantine area.
“We’ve anticipated Luka’s arrival at Nashville Zoo since planning for this exhibit began in 2013,” said Lanny Brown, mammal curator. “Her trip from Phoenix was uneventful, and she’s spent her first days in Nashville exploring her enclosure and getting acclimated to her new keepers.”
Luka was beloved by the Phoenix community since her birth in 2013 and made headlines earlier this year due to a case of mistaken identity. For the first two years of her life, Luka was thought to be a male. It wasn’t until preparation began for the move to Nashville that Phoenix officials discovered he was actually a she.

Due to a greatly different response to bait, the procedure does not apply to bear and other wildlife. «Read the rest of this article»
