Ladeze and Wildlife

The annual Lazy Daze Ladeze event in southern Oregon was a rollicking good time.

Here are our hosts, Joan and Lorna.

This is a girls only event.

There was no group picture taken this year. And you know that I didn't take many pictures, as usual. I hope that someone else did and posts them. If so, I'll put a link here. (Lorna's pics are here).

One day, some of the gals went on a river rafting trip. I didn't do the rafting, but instead, went with Kate into town. We saw a sign for Wildlife Images and decided to see what that was. When we parked the car, a guy was coming out to the front of the building with a bald eagle on his arm for a photo op with some other folks.

It's a wildlife rehabilitation and education center. Very beautiful place. You can go on a tour and see some of their permanent residents. I thought it was kind of cool to stand a few feet from a grizzly bear. When this guy stands up, he's about 9' tall. The fence between us is electric.

  1. Great photo op with the eagle and bear. Would love to see more pictures - I know Kate said she was having a wonderful time. Sounds like fun.
