Debriefing the Ridge Run.

It’s been over a month since I completed my third Bridger Ridge Run. As you can probably surmise from my not-so-quick final blog, I didn't reach my goal. I could roll out with a bunch of excuses, but, after a thorough self-evaluation, I know the reason why I failed. Here’s a quick rundown of my mistakes:

Biking after dark.

Riding at night seldom begins in the dark. The ride starts in the evening, but as the days get shorter, it concludes after nightfall. Sometimes, shit happens, and two flat tires and a broken chain later you're picking your way back to the car by the light of the crescent moon and the toy of a headlamp that was only intended for campfire games of Cards Against Humanity. But somewhere along the way, in the dark, it becomes obvious that this misadventure is kinda fun and would be oodles more fun with better headlamps and good friends who like to laugh and get a few cheap thrills. A new creature of the night has been born.

All about the prairie falcon.

Often, it is the charismatic and spectacular that draws people to nature. When wildlife is depicted onscreen for example, we’ll usually see images of large mammals and skillful predators; bears, wolves, lions, bison, elk, all doing their thing amidst some gorgeous and wild landscape. Birding is no different, with raptors garnering much of the public’s awe and attention. This shouldn’t be surprising: hawks, owls, and eagles are majestic predators that have been honored by human cultures for millennia, appearing in art, literature, and oral histories. For many birders though, it is the falcons that hold a special place among birds of prey.

Making the most of fall.

With snow over Labor Day weekend, we're reminded that fall can be short around these parts. With that said, here are some can't-miss activities to try before Old Man winter comes calling for real.
