This ia a scene about a mile from Lightfoot Cycles. The roadside pic does not come close to doing it justice.
This is the bear I met today. At first I was afraid but this one seemed to be ignoring me so I snuck closer and got this pick. Actually he was doing his business "in the woods" which answersn that age old question. I guess that is why he has that look on his face while he just sat there doing his thing.
This is the Conner family , Dad Ryan, Mom Robin, Reese, Rider and Riley--and like a lot of my pics those kids are cuter in person than they appear in pic.
Ryan and Robin own/operate R&R Aviation which is who Ben the helicopter pilot works for.
If you think you have heard of R&R Aviation then you must be watching the TV show AXMEN about logging operations in the Northwest. R&R is the helicopter company featured on the show when logs needed to be moved from hard to get at places. This is a big deal so look for them in coming seasons. heck these folks we are talking clebs here and this poor pilgrim from Ohio got to meet them. http://www.rrconner.com/index.php?id=22 cool website
We had a great time/conversation together and even had dinner where the kids were the entertainment. Lot of fun and the food was super. I had the buffalo ribeye --good stuff.
In a few years all these kids will be helicopter pilots so the company name will be changed tp R&R&R&R&R Aviation.
This is the place to go for good dead buffalo. Here we have Reese and Rider doing there thing --they turned into sprinters when they saw me taking this pic--they are very fast.
