Sunday, Talisha and I drove up to Mesa Falls. It was Beautiful. The leaves are starting to change to fall colors and the vegatation is still very much thick and full.We hiked the trail that takes you just above the lower falls and we were able to watch a big mother bear and three cubs across the river for about 45 minutes as they fed on berries. (Those will be the four black spots in the blurry picture below..lol). I have spent alot time in the outdoors but this experience is by far one of the most memorable. We were sitting on the edge of a small cliff about 40 ft. high above the waterfall, with a great view up and down the river. A bald eagle flew over head, the sun was beginning to set and the bears had no clue that we were there. It was just awesome to experience this with my wife.
Hey...I Just got married!......in July. This is a picture of my beautiful bride Talisha. Also pictured is the gun cabinet that she made for me with the assistance of her father. I must also mention that there is also a coin inlayed in the wood from the games at Cabela's from our first date that you can not see in the picture. What an amazing gift! She is always thinking of me in unique ways. Also pictured are matching .50 calibre Knight blackpowder rifles that were given to us by her parents.

When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe,
we shall become as corrupt as Europe .
The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those
who are willing to work and give to those who would not..
It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes.
A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.
I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the
government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense
of taking care of them.
My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results
from too much government.
No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear
arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of
patriots and tyrants.
To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which
he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

I was on my way out to Jody's and I saw three moose, a herd of deer, a swan, a pheasant, some geese and a few sand hill cranes. With the sun going down and the snow melting away it was just amazing way to finish the day and once again recognize why I love Idaho so much. My camera sucks otherwise there would be pictures of them all and the dates wouldn't be wrong.
