The White Squirrel

There are several posts I haven’t gotten to share with you over the past several months. I probably won’t post all of them, but will most photos and updates from some of my favorite trips over the past year. School has kept me away and very busy. ¬†And, understandingly, my blogs have become a low priority.

Several months ago, we went to visit Chris’ family and one of the places we went to visit was Olney, Ill., a place where Chris lived and worked for a couple of years.
One of the sole purposes of going there was to see the famed white squirrels.
We found the squirrels as soon as we drove into a local park.
Chris said the local community college does a squirrel count every year. There were less than 100 the last time Chris heard.
We met a couple from Colorado who also came to see the white squirrels. They said there were a colony of black squirrels in Kansas. We’ll have to find our way there sometime to snap some photos of them.
