Going back to LLELA

My dad wanted to do something this week so my aunt suggested that we go back to LLELA. I am so excited it was a cool place and to go back so soon is even better. As you may recall that I went to LLELA awhile back with @sambiology @brentano @briang @mchlfx and several others on a BioBlitz. Our main objective was to find some kind of damselfly that had probably just been one of those rare flukes that happen every now and then. Anyway we didn't find that but we found a whole bunch of other stuff. Now is time to go back on Friday after Thanksgiving. I am hoping that I will be able to see some new birds I have not added to my life list yet. I got to make sure that I leave no stone un-turned. My grandmother is not yet out of the Rehab Center and has to go in for some more medical tests and stuff which is kind of bogging us down. I am very thankful that she is okay and I am thankful for good old Mother Nature to be there when I need her the most to calm my nerves. This is the first Thanksgiving with out my grandmother and that is tough on all of us. So to get our minds on a little bit of adventure we are going to go out to LLELA and see what we can find. My Grand Dad, Mother, and my Brother are all going with me this time. I have been wanting to show them the Green Tree Frogs that we found when I went the first time with the naturalist group. I for one want to nab some winter plants as well as a good mammal or two. Maybe I might find a Osprey, Kestrel, or maybe a Bald Eagle. I am looking forward to going back it will get me another chance to get even more on my life list. I spend too much time in the Arlington area which is not a bad think; heck, I find tons of stuff here that people overlook but I like to get out of my comfort zone from time to time and explore places less traveled that are still new. The first time I went to LLELA I was blown away by its beauty and majesty. The way the River water's sparkled on the Bittern Trail as the sun shone brightly in the sky was pure magic to me. My heart falls for all sorts of natural areas. My heart is still in Arizona and Colorado and all over Texas, part of it is still stuck out in Arkansas. LLELA is a truly special place in the DFW. I have heard about it many times before I went on my first time and boy; from what others said about it I just had to experience it myself. Sometimes words cant describe how you feel about a place it is so beautiful that you become lost for words. I find anything that takes my breath away indescribable at first but soon I know what my favorite sites are and what my favorite creatures and plants were I would encounter on the hike. I have to admit the late Summer Hike was pretty cool now I just have to see what lies in wait in the winter time. I guess I have to wait until Friday to find out. Boy I am so excited I can hardly wait to get back out there. By the way I asked this on Facebook; but does anyone know what I should be keeping an eye out for out at LLELA? I want to know what has been spotted out there recently. @mchlfx I think you might have a great idea. You too @sambiology anything special this time of year? Anyway this is your goodbuddy Zachary Chapman AKA galactic_bug_man signing off. Have a happy and wonderful Thanksgiving @loverbird @lulubelle @troutlily57 @eangler @kimberlietx @sambiology @charley and the rest of you on iNaturalist. Have fun and be safe. Live Long and Prosper! :)

If you drop in at the new visitor/info center they have a whiteboard with new and notable observations. But I don't know if anybody is staffing it tomorrow. Normally it only has volunteers on Saturday and Sunday.

Best wishes to your grandmother!
