This is Bertram the Bison, at the wheel of my car. He is a National Parks Bison. In fact, here he is at Palo Alto National Battlefield:
And also at the top of Port Isabel lighthouse:
I met Bertram in a national parks gift store. He had a tag on him saying "I am Buddy the Bison and I like to go to parks!" I LOVE to go to National Parks and so he is a terrific companion. But Buddy just wasn't his name. He definitely is a Bertram. And I intend to take him to a lot of national parks!
I am a keen amateur photographer, an avid traveler, a dedicated researcher. My main area of interest is the European middle ages although I like history and culture, especially social history, of all eras and regions. I am especially fond of good architecture and I am really, really fond of reptiles.
I usually post this blog to share highlights from my travels with family and friends. If you are a potential friend wandering by, you are welcome; any of my art or nature images posted here are available for non profit personal or study use, and if reproduced I ask that I be credited as photographer.
