PBS is airing a new series next week called ‘The Battle for the Elephants‘. It takes on the topic of the brutal poaching of elephants in Africa who are killed for their ivory tusks which supposedly have healing powers. If you get PBS I hope you will watch because this is a cause that needs our attention. Elephants (and Rhinos) are being killed at alarming rates and they need our help and protection because the measures the individual countries are taking just aren’t getting the job done.

I’m in Rocky Mountain National Park now – a 4 AM wake up call for some snowshoeing tomorrow. Hopefully I’ll get a decent sunrise. Unfortunately, the past two days in Denver have been very ‘blah’ weather wise – grey overcast skies and LOTS of snow.
