Another Photoshoot with new Forest Friends

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" features a creative and curious girl who loves science, her little brother, and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a MG novel and several picture books with STEM elements and dogs.

          1. I’m really hoping that once they are done building (they do have to stop at some point, right?) that we may see some of our wildlife come back. I grew up on a street in the suburbs that had some pretty big utility easements around us which prevented building. It was an odd set up because we still had tons of trees and a couple of creeks, which meant a lot of wildlife. It felt like we were almost in the middle of nowhere, but we were still amazingly close to everything. I miss that balance.

              1. It’s probably one of the biggest reasons we stay where we are. We’ve looked into moving, but couldn’t agree to give up where we are to make the drive anywhere an event. As it is now, my Hubby already drives almost an hour just to get to work. Any of our options would have added close to half an hour to that drive. There are huge positives and huge negatives to both living close and living out in nature.

                1. We often joke about how if we hadn’t moved here, he would have something like a 10 minute drive to work. The problem is that where we used to live is so claustrophobic and over populated. Having grown up where I did, it was suffocating. He agrees that it is worth the drive to not have to live in that environment.
