Cool lizard, Howard. I sure do get a kick out of their amazing colors. And I like the prairie dog/bison photo: quite a pair!

Well, the sight of Linda grinning at that Meers cobbler made me smile in return. Too bad the burgers were not as good as hyped. It is SO easy to make a good burger.

Loved the pics today Howard as always. We had the opportunity of meeting Stacy & Gail this winter while in Casa Granda area. Got together with them at some casual Doubletree RV owners lunches...great people.

Thanks for showing me places I've never been in my home state! We were in Sulphur last weekend but didn't take our rig - 50th reunion planning time and attended an all-school reunion. Anyone else already here in Branson for the rally? We're in site 63.

I am sorry to hear that you didn't like the burgers at Meers. I guess it is an acquired taste.

Having camped at he Wichita Mtns wildlife refuge for many years I am overjoyed to read your reviews of a little known part of and Oklahoma. It is a really unique place and one that is well worth visiting. Since you enjoy hiking you might try the hike to Pennington's mine. It is a seldom visited place where the Pennington Brothers had their gold mine during the short gold rush that occurred in the Wichita Mountains. You will have to do a little hunting to find it but it is a nice hike and a very interesting and unique place!

I'm not surprised at the unimpressive burger. In my opinion, 97% fat free would not only make it rather tasteless but also dry. I'm not advocating fat but once the fat content is down to a certain point the meat needs some additive such as onion soup or steak sauce to give some decent flavor.

Hi Howard,
You mentioned that Linda practiced the call of the Vireo, so you'd know it. Where do you learn the differnt bird calls? Are there websites where bird calls can be played? I'd love to know the calls of birds in Colorado, as sometimes I hear them but can't see them, so I don't know what I'm listening to.


There are two websites that we use a lot for birding. Both have sample calls of birds.

The first is All About Birds at http://www.birds.cornell.edu/AllAboutBirds/.

And the second is WhatBird at http://www.whatbird.com/.

We use both sites quite a bit. Hope they help! :)

Howard, thank you SO MUCH for these websites! I turned up my speakers & started playing bird sounds - Gaby's going crazy trying to find those birds in the house!

Hey, just wanted to let you know that "world famous" does not mean it taste good, only that people from around the world know about them.
