Last week we enjoyed a quick trip to Colorado. We did a lot of work fixing up our grandparents’ house but were still able to have fun roaming.
One of the things I wanted to do, was to get a selfie with a cow. Some of my grandparents land is rented out to a rancher that keeps his cows one the land.One of the calf got out of fence so my great uncle and I chased it back in:)
Another thing I like doing while in Colorado is go cactus hunting. I only collect the barrel cactus that are much smaller and better looking then the other cactus.
I also wanted to catch a rattlesnake and have one my uncles teach me how to skin it. Unfortunately, we did not see any snakes. My mom never said I couldn’t, but was thankful I didn’t.
Last night I set up our black light to try to attract large moths.
I also tried a beer, banana and brown sugar mix that I spread on our trees to try to attract some moths too. I found a tulip tree moth and several little moths like the Isabella tiger moth and a bunch of different types of inch worm moths.
I hope I can try again this weekend and hopefully find a luna moth.
