From bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator of DON’T EAT BEES!, WOLVES OF WHITEWATER FALLS, HAWK OF WA PU TA CREEK, MODEL MAKER, NARROW PATHS, CAROUSEL RIDERS, Lisa Loucks-Christenson writing as L.L. Christenson brings you DRIFTER’S RANCH. On the roads ahead, through every L.L. Christenson’s original story and illustration, you’ll meet the characters and animals that Drifter, the Border Collie, encounters. These are the stories of a wayward stray dog—one who appears to shoulder angels that, when it’s God’s Will, offer some heavenly direction. Drifter is courageous in all battles and he finds ways to overcome troubles and adversaries. He’s known to dig up the truth where it’s been all along, and give hope to the faint of heart. Drifter, the gentle giant, never leaves a story before imparting some “Drifter” wisdom. He always gives a piece of his soul and, often, inspiration to the ones who didn’t deserve his gifts at all.

Bear Lisa Loucks Christenson Minnesota documentary Sam & the GRYT Adventures Sam the Border Collie

Lisa Loucks Christenson Documentary - woods
Sam & the GRYT Adventures™ Bow Wow Detectives® by Lisa Loucks Christenson
Today the weather was cool, but not misty like yesterday. The trails were icy, but it was coming down the bluffs that was most difficult. I found some very different looking scat today. I can't identify it. I did hear what sounded like a bear in the woods, but the crow, blue jays, and a pileated woodpecker drowned out the moans I heard. It was traveling to the ridge anyway.

I was hearing intermittent barking, it sounded like a female coyote, and it crossed my path and ended up on the same side of the bluff as me by the afternoon. I saw two eagles in the valley
and one on the way to the valley today. The pair in the valley circled each other until they were at least a couple thousand feet in the air flew towards each other and I could hear their calls. I watched as they locked talons and dropped from the sky. It's always fun to see this behavior, same with the hawks.
I only saw one trumpeter swan today, but I was on the bluffs, and only in the wetlands for an hour or so today. 

There were so many tracks in the ice, they were hard to distinguish. Some were exactly what I expected to find. I hadn't been in that area in many years. Not since my last incident there. Decided it was time to walk without turning back. 
Got back and Em and I took care of Sam and the Greyhounds. I've decided to share the title of the new series: Sam & the GRYT Adventures, this is the title for the new Bow Wow Detectives® series I wrote about in my previous blog. Hope you like the pictures of them! 

--See you on the Journey,
