run by the Department of the Interior, the Bureau of Land Management, the National Archives, and the US Fish and Wildlife service respectively and I think they’re all pretty great.

The bird outside my door is the best bird, look how much style it has, it added streamers to its nest

American bison mothers and their young. Fun fact, of the 500,000 or so bison in the United States, only around 15-20,000 are wild bison, the rest are are raised as livestock. This is down from a population in the millions, possibly tens of millions, from the first half of the 19th century.

US carbon emissions fall to an 18 year low.(although carbon dioxide itself did rise slightly). The decline is attributed to numerous factors including lingering effects of the recession, a mild winter last year, continued general efforts towards green energy and lower emissions, and more power plants switching from coal to natural gas.

Though beautiful, the hike feels a bit like a hospice visit. Grinnell Glacier has lost 90 percent of its ice in the last century. Of the 150 glaciers that speckled Glacier National Park at its founding in 1910, only 25 remain. The latest predictions indicate that all of the glaciers in Glacier National Park will be gone by 2030. Cause of death: slow retreat due to temperature rise.

Views from East Rock Park. Most people(including myself in previous posts) posts pictures looking towards downtown, so I decided to post some spares I had looking towards areas with more foliage.

I’m not saying I have a phobia of wasps or anything, I’m just saying I’m terrified of anything that even looks like anything that might be described as a bee.

You Are Here. This is the only home you will ever have. A planet traveling around a relatively bright yellow drawf star(which labeling is a kind of a misnomer), which is traveling around one of the outer bands of the Milky Way, which is currently hurtling through the universe on a crash course with the Andromeda galaxy. A reminder for Earth Day, which should be every day, space is vast and spectacular, but there is no emergency backup planet.

My fence project continues. This is harder than it seems. First off, 1/2 of the fence wasn’t even standing anymore when I started this. I managed to put most of it back up though.(In the foreground in the second picture it’s obviously hopeless, that tree grew in over it a long time ago, that gap in the middle I think I can actually fix, I just need an opening onto the other side.) The end parts were the biggest paint because it was so overgrown, particularly with vines that just wanted to hang onto the damn thing. Meanwhile, what I have gotten painted so far has taken like 7 hours because the brush I have is all tiny and I was too stubborn to go buy another. But dang if that’s not becoming a pretty looking fence now.

Why would anyone let this fence fall into such disrepair.

The lawn is a great dichotomy of the aspects of nature. In the background, the last remnants of the most ridiculous winter in my living memory, in the foreground, the first blossoming of spring.(In fact there’s more today, this was taken yesterday)
