My daughter and I were out for a run last week - and were attacked by a Goshawk! This happened to me maybe six or seven years ago and I know that the same bird has been equally aggressive with a few other friends and neighbors that have likewise accidentally ventured too close to its nest (which I still haven't actually seen BTW). At various other times I've encountered cougars, black bears and protective mother mule deer (almost as aggressive as the goshawk) but being chased through the woods by a taloned falcon is pretty much the scariest encounter of them all!

It's finally Summer! Now just be sure to keep some part of it a little bit lazy :)

Graduation was last week at our local high school - and today is the last day of school - but the critters at Harts Pass are wise beyond their years as per usual. G'day mate!

Spiders invading the house... and the Paris Climate Agreement on my mind.

The weather last week was about as fickle as my ability to post. A short week ahead with State track meet coaching duties on the horizon, but Harts Pass will arrive as usual on Friday morning. GRRR!

By guest cartoonist, Malloch DeSalvo! And Thor VERY much likes the idea of thinking about something... and making it come true :) Thanks so much to Malloch, Dexter, and ALL of the kid cartoonists in the 4th grade at Methow Valley Elementary!

On the heels of another successful comics workshop at the local elementary school... we bring you SPRING TIME COMICS by Dexter Delaney! Guest commentary by Thor - but look out for the porcupine/wolf-with-cymbols wake-up patrol :)

A great writing quote, but applicable to SO many other things with regards to decision making, leadership, and perceptions of competency!

Loup Loup Pass to the Okanogan: currently closed due to a sliding/collapsing roadbed - in TWO different places! For those communing back and fourth from the Methow to the Okanogan, this adds about 40 minutes each way and perhaps an extra 40 miles total. The Loup Loup wolf pack? They're totally fine with it. Nature bats last... GRRR!

OK, one more springtime edition of Harts Pass :)
