HBR - 9.3mi

Story:
Harvey Bear Ranch: It was a beautiful Thanksgiving day in the park.  Although the lower trails were busy the hike was very quiet, not many people or animals.  My friend Mark and I enjoyed an easy 9+ mile hike but did not see much wildlife until later in the hike.  We did happen about a Yellow Billed Magpie and an American Kestrel that were perfectly dressed as a pilgram and indian for their Thanksgiving feast.

Story:
Was a stormy evening and was able to get a quick hike at Harvey Bear Ranch.  I did the ususual Happy Spot hike counter clockwise.  Most of the critters were in their homes for the storms but did see a couple of Goldene Eagles, sorry no good pictures, Gold Finches, American Kestrels and some wild pigs.

Was a beautiful cool day and very quiet.  Good thing I had the time to hike 9 miles since I did not see any wild life until the second half of my hike.
