This is a short video of the porcupine approaching me and trying to climb up my leg. Someone said that before I skied up to him, a man had been laying on the ground and let the porcupine walk all over him, so I was pretty sure he wasn't going to bite or stick me with his quills. I wish my video was longer, but I was really nervous and trying not to freak out.
Also, I have to say what an honor it has been to be invited to be a part of the new Telluride Insider blog for PlumTV.com. I was a little suspicious when I received the invitation via e-mail from the editorial team last week, but it is definitely legitimate! Apparently they found me on Twitter and liked both my Mountains Rule and my Telluride Daily Photo blogs. My very first blog entry has been posted on their website today and you can see it HERE.
At times like this I am reminded of how far I've come with photography and creating blogs. The reason I first bought a digital camera was to sell a bunch of stuff on eBay. This was when we lived in Oklahoma before we started looking into moving to Telluride. When I first started posting photos and blogs, I had no idea what I was doing, and sometimes I still feel that way, but it has turned into a great hobby. I love showing people the places and things we've seen and done. I'm not sure why, but the increased blog traffic makes me a little nervous and excited all at once. I'm always open to questions and suggestions and I feel very humbled that I have blog followers that visit on a regular basis. Thank you to all of my blog viewers and thank you to PlumTV!!
