We drove to Douglas yesterday to do a little shopping and exploring. On our way to Douglas, we took a small side trip to Ayers Natural Bridge park. Many of the Oregon Trail settlers wrote about this unusual bridge while they were stopped here on their way west including one man from the Donner party.
this area has had this winter. We climbed one of the trails leading to the top of the natural bridge. A little rough going and a little steep at times, but very short. The view was worth the climb!
I wish I had brought my 500 mm lens to get photos of some of the birds. This looks like an excellent resting area for migrating birds. There were quite a few small yellow and blue birds that looked quite interesting. Maybe next time....

I'm hoping to see more birds around the campground as the weather warms up. I did see a Bald Eagle in a fight with two hawks. I had to wonder if there was a nest nearby and they were keeping the Eagle away from their young ones.
On The Cutting Board
I'm spending all my free time working on six Happy Campers. The large aqua/red Happy Camper with the lace has been reserved, but I still have six to list with one mug rug that I had finished a couple of weeks ago.
Below is the puppy in the window. This one will be listed with the other five Happy Campers.
If I manage to get all six mug rugs done and listed by next weekend, it'll be a new record for me. A total of eight Happy Campers in one month. Hmm, I wonder if I can break it again next month? Hard to say....
