Greetings and Salutations all ye people! There is no time like the present to start off with introductions.. I’m PB the PD.. Pete Bryson the Prairie Dog, and I’ve just been adopted… For days I hung out with my kind in a National Park Visitor’s Center, waiting on this moment.. One by one, I’d watch my fellow stuffed animals head off in Prairie Dog awareness.. I was happy for them, but it kinda hurt. Why not me.. Was there something wrong with me? The day started like any other, but I must admit, I’d been eyeing the cute little blonde and her big brother from the moment they walked in the door.. If only.. And could hardly belive it- when I watched their dad sign the adoption papers and away we went! There’s so much to see out side of that gift shop! AND plus the whole idea is to promote awareness for my actual live animal friends.. So I’m doing what I can..
We’ve spent a lot of time in the van. Oh the sights to behold! I have no complaints, except that the blonde’s bro insists on holding me by the tail.. “hey pal- that’s not how I prefer to travel!” I’d really like to help the driver out by steering or blowing the horn, or something.. But she feels too responsible.. So I thought I’d surprise her, by updating her blog and give you a quick over view of what we’ve seen the last little while..
The first time this van crossed the Co River in southern New Mexico, it was dry- they tell me, but the further north we go- it’s not dry anymore! Can you believe that this River supplies power, water, and food for 30 million people?! We gazed upon its muddy waters at the Grand Canyon Skywalk, Hoover Dam, and then at Grand Junction, CO
This group hammered through 3 of them.. Zion (where they saw their first Bighorn Sheep), Bryce (where they adopted yours truly), and Arches.
And yesterday found us enjoying the world from a windshield, driving thru the beautiful Rocky Mountains and being blown away by the open grassland between the Ranges; travelling up Pike’s Peak by Cog Railway and shivering from the 40 degree cloud that enshrouded the summit; And driving through tumultuous weather last night that included a GORGEOUS rainbow and lots of lightning..
And that’s all for now, folks.. This is Pete- over and out
P.S Adopt if you get the chance 🙂
