Moose Meals

We haven't had many moose visits this summer. We love our daily deer visits, but it's extra special when the moose stop by. This morning during breakfast, a bull moose made his way around the house pulling leaves from every bush and tree in sight. He ate for quite awhile hidden in the trees, then crossed the road and moved on.
Breakfast Over - time to go

At lunch, we didn't see the moose, but the mama deer and her two little ones stopped by for a drink and snack. She isn't as comfortable as the other deer so keeps everyone close by and in the trees when she senses us nearby. Terry was able to sneak in a couple photos last weekend.

The bucks like to check in morning and night (early Aug photo)

The little ones - they haven't quite figured out drinking from the waterfall. (late Aug photo)

This evening, we came home with take-out food but got sidetracked when Terry realized our friend was back for dinner. We were able to sneak out on the deck and watch him eat the bushes he missed this morning. He is a big boy, I can't imagine how many leaves he has to eat to fill up. Hopefully he'll stick around for a few days and a few more meals.

Penguin Allergy

I had an interesting visit to the allergy doctor yesterday. It appears that the only way I can be allergy free is move to Antarctica, continue to avoid celery, and just in case I have a penguin allergy - don't get a pet.  I guess I could test that theory with a quick trip to the zoo.

Word has it, that this spring and summer are horrible for allergies here in Utah.  A dry winter, strong winds, little rain, and who knows what else have affected almost anyone you meet.  Until I ran into the food allergy issues last year, I didn't think I had allergies to anything.  After yesterday, I'll have to plan an extra 30 minutes whenever I fill out a medical form.  I'm new to the allergy thing and have many friends that have lived with it their entire lives and get shots to manage - I'm realizing it's a real pain.  So, here's a recap of how I ended up worrying about penguin allergies.

I came home from Malaysia in November with a nasty head cold, exacerbated by the plane…

Local Training Roads

After three great days of riding at CampoVelo Weekend, I was ready to get serious about spring training back in Utah. With no weekend trips and only two work trips in the last two months, I could take advantage of our amazing local roads. Even better, I'm doing it on a new bike! I've been looking for the last few years, but finally pulled the trigger on a dreamy Pinarello Dogma F8.

I take our local roads for granted, concentrating on intervals or chatting with friends rather than taking photos. We have some of the best training roads in the world, as many pros and others have discovered. It's been great to see so many people out this spring enjoying our not-so-little secret.

Women's Cycling Kit Review

I have a hard time turning down a new cycling kit, especially if it represents and supports women's cycling. In addition to riding in the best gear out there, I can proudly display my support and jumpstart a conversation or two about women's cycling.

Over the winter, I've added a 2013 Specialized-lululemon, 2013 Vanderkitten, and 2014 Women's Cycling Association (WCA) kit to the collection. I'm still waiting on the WCA kit, but the others have had some saddle time and will have plenty more.

My local cycling team is primarily sponsored by Skullcandy and the kits are made by Utah company DNA Cycling which also provides team sponsorship. While our cycling team isn't women's specific, I'm very proud we are associated with DNA as they support our local pro women's team DNA Cycling pb K4. (Just one of many kits on my wish list) 
Let's start with the facts. I'm 6 feet tall and for my height, have long femurs and even longer torso. When not wearing…
