  1. My Mortal Enemy

    Saw my first Gila monster last week--hopefully, the first of many. Saw desert tortoises and a rattlesnake, too.


    I spent most of my week removing bufflegrass. It's an invasive species from Africa that grows very well in the Sonoran Desert--unfortunately, it chokes out native plants and catches fire easily. Fire isn't common in the desert, so the blazes that can sweep through an area infested with bufflegrass can turn it into a bufflegrass monoculture. It's everywhere. While they've ...

  2. Warm Green Fuzzies

    I've never actually seen ocotillo with their leaves before. It's an interesting sight--from a distance they remind me of green pipe cleaners. Whenever I've visited the Southwest, it's invariably been winter; it might still be warm in Tucson at that time of year but the effects of the monsoon are clearly long gone. Despite the fact that it happens during the summer months, I'm sad I won't be around to see it. It's been a long time since I heard the sound of thunder during a good strong lightning ...

  3. Update

    It's been a LONG time since I posted anything long here. Nope, I'm still around.

    I've been traveling a lot this summer (with my mom!), around many places, but I've spent most of my time in Wyoming- three weeks so far. I'm actually typing this in a library in Jackson right now. The reason I've been here so long, and the reason I haven't been updating, is because we've basically had to live in our car and we haven't had much money for...anything, really.

    Essentially what ...

  4. Concerned

    Every so often I stop in and look at our member map. I have never posted before, only read some of the other articles and blogs. That was my thing and honestly, I didn't mind watching over from the shadows. However, as with all things affected by time and circumstances, I can't help but notice the drop in activity and the removal of member spots on the map. I can allow some of this to be chalked up to....normal reasons. Lives change, jobs, no interest; I get that.

    However, for quite ...

  5. Experiences from an prehistoric fish and ancient divine being

    This will be an small thing but I will later delve deeper into them in seperate stories. I love to share details about my very unlikely kintypes who are depending on someones view either unusual or interesting. For now this is general information about them and later posts will go deeper into them though expect the most posts will be about my Godec kintype. Simply because I know more about this kintype and less about Dunkleosteus Terrelli.

    Anyway I dont have any clear idea what to write ...
