Welcome to Small Wonders: Life and Nature in the Colorado Foothills. This is a project I've had in mind for a long time, and a snowy spring equinox seems an auspicious moment to start, especially as our newest local predator has inspired me this morning (see "her" story below). This site is about the small wonders we can observe in our own backyards--if we take the time and have the patience to simply be with the beings around us. The wonders of the wild.
I plan to share observations daily, though I may resort occasionally to previously published pieces on whatever's going on here on the eastern slope of the Front Range. I hope you'll stop in again, and get in touch if the spirit moves.
