Cortez Bound!

As many of you know, the Triple D and many of our animals travel down south for a change in scenery.  We do this for many reasons, but mainly because the transition from Winter to Spring is less than photogenic.  This year for the first time, we are venturing down to Cortez, CO.  There, we will be staying at the Canyon of the Ancients Guest Ranch. There is still some lodging available during our event, so book your reservation now!  The lodges are truly amazing!!  Check out their website.  

We have also just finalized our species list that will be joining us and a tentative!
Your starting lineup is as follows:

*Mountain Lion
*Tundra Wolf
*Red Fox (+interaction)
*Cross Fox

While my heart always breaks to leave some of the animals at home, I am equally excited to go on another adventure with the animals coming with!  It is always an extremely enriching experience for them to experience a new place, new sights, new sounds, & new smells.  Plus, we'll be in much warmer weather!!!!  (Its currently zero degrees here today! Ick!)  Jay & I took a trip this past fall and scouted potential sites for this event, and we really hope you like them as much as we did!!!  We will be setting up around historical Anasazi ruins and in those ruins, we will be working a mountain lion, a coyote, and a bobcat.  We also have our trademark "jumping mountain lion" site picked out....and those rocks are BIIIIIIIIIIIIG!!!  (Trust me! I had to climb up on top of them just to see if I could do it!.....and I'm afraid of heights!  Nothing like having to face my fears with a mountain lion attached to my wrist by her leash! Go big or go home, right?)  We also have a couple of different pond sites for our grizzly bear and our tiger.  Its going to be eventful & fun-filled!!!

By the end of the month though, we are all excited to go back home to the beauty of the mountains and kick up our feet and relax for a few days.

And then.............our busiest season begins!! Busy baby season!

Anticipated baby species this year are as follows (but not guaranteed):

*Tundra wolf pups
*Coyote pups
*Bobcat kittens
*Siberian lynx kittens
*Red fox kits (including a cross or silver coat)
*Raccoon babies
*Canada lynx kittens
*Otter Pup

We are looking forward to the change in seasons just around the corner.  We love the beauty of our backyard, the beauty of our wildlife, and the beauty that you all capture with these two perfect elements as your subjects.
