Wandering Wingers just north of St George, Utah from where we'll caravan to Torrey, Utah. We'll both be staying there for about a week while exploring such places as Capital Reef, Goblin Valley, Wild Horse, and the areas near Escalante and Grand Staircase. That will hold us till just after Easter at which time we should be getting an update on when and where we'll start our summer jobs.
I think I shared with you that our other friends Jim & Barb of JimandBarbsRVAdventure would be working with us this summer. But in the last few weeks Dave & Maxine have also accepted a position with the same company. So all 3 couples will be 4-wheeling & blogging together through Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and possibly Oregon. I wonder does that make us the 3 coupolas? Is that even a word? Oh well, who cares, it should be a blast!
It is definitely Spring in Lake Mead! Joan has 'burned up' the digital memory and batteries of our cameras taking pics the last 2 weeks. You wouldn't think there would be such color in the desert, but there is. Check out some of her pics.
Last week we were Road Monitoring in an area called Cottonwood East along Mojave Lake and we spotted some of the local wild life....a family of burros
Alas, not all was well in their little paradise as there was another male suitor attempting to impress the young female

(almost as high as the 1st dune)
In some grids we counted none, while in others we had as many as 900+. We did this for about 5 hours at which time we both decided plant surveying is tuff! And once was enough for us..But we did enjoy the company, the opportunity to participate and the boat ride!
We also managed to sneak in a little bowling with Leslie, Chris, Ginny and Don. Boulder City has a neat little bowling alley that was built in 1963. We had a great time and hope to get more of the volunteers interested in some outings here when we return in the fall.
Well that's about it for now. Stay Tuned. More to Come.
PS...shout out to Jaelyn....my breakfast buddy while I was visiting family in Florida 2 weeks ago!
