Animals and Nature Murals

At dusk and early dawn you need to watch for moose on the Highway east and north of Anchorage, Alaska. South of Des Moines, Iowa, you need to watch for deer. Driving north of Parker, Arizona on Hwy 62, beware of wild donkeys. The gray donkeys are especially hard to see as you travel around a curve. Unlike deer eyes that reflect back to you when you use your headlights, the donkey’s eyes do not reflect.

We took a trip in the early morning hours in search for a dentist and saw this beautiful rosy salmon color on the mountains at the entrance to Lake Havasu City.

All Terry wants for Christmas is his two front teeth. A couple of weeks ago he lost the front tooth which had been a permanent bridge. Since the tooth holding the bridge was in poor condition, he needed an expensive repair. Now we are waiting for the new tooth to arrive to replace the temporary one.

I was given permission to photograph the beautiful murals at the dentist office that were painted by a gentleman named Harlan. Although he died this year, Harlan left these wonderful murals of the area around Lake Havasu City for us to enjoy.
