As today was yet another Zero Day in Durango I thought I’d share my bird list with you. It’s grown by leaps and bonds because of Rafiki. He is a birder and a good one. He’s done all kinds of bird studies and banded birds many times.
This was one of my longest stretches where I was off the trail for any of my three thru-hikes. I was really looking forward to getting back to the trail but Rafiki and I were committed to hiking with each other, as well as splitting the cost of the rental car, and lastly I was looking to see Jill.
