Leather or shades of brown is our color of the month photo challenge this week. Leather being a preserved animal hide or skin made me think of the many animals we’ve been able to observe in our travels. Noble creatures such as horses to silly cows have all unexpectedly cross our path. In retrospect, we crossed their path!

After life had me hitting the pause button in blogging, social media and YouTube videos, we’re finally heading back to our normal routines. The drive home was just the opportunity to scan the photo archives! It’s always a pleasant distraction to remember the wonderment and excitement of running into a variety of wildlife on our trips.

The Bisti Badlands New Mexico

We came here for odd rocks and got treated to a group of wild horses. Our surprise find of the trip.

Scaredy Cat Cow near Carlsbad Caverns New Mexico

It was an after arrival north of Carlsbad Caverns and we’d set out on a walk to the top of a hill. Being on BLM land, we ended up walking through several grazing cattle.

This cow in particular was curiously afraid of Cooper! It start dancing and skittering around which of course got Cooper excited too.
