Comments

If it hadn't been for Greg sending me that picture in the first place, I might never have tried that sun trails photo. So much thanks all around to AOA!

Thank you for the link to that baby animal post. Rumor was they had cows, pigs AND sheep and I was hoping to get out there. Glad I can read a first-person account.
