Some of us feel we’re in the movie Groundhog Day.  We keep waking up to the same hellish morning with the current administration pulling a new stunt more horrific than the last. 

In contrast, Defenders of Wildlife has declared this the year of coexistence. Each month a different animal is highlighted. Imagine if this were the principal guiding federal policy.

I know I’ve missed a couple months, but those of us in the Gorge were hibernating. Spring is here, and I return to my blog!

Quick update if you haven’t seen that new wolves have been spotted around Crater Lake. They’re calling them Indigo Wolves which I find rather poetic. Their tough stubbornness to survive despite bad odds and policy moves me greatly.
