Horses evading road grader

After I passed the horses that I showed yesterday, a road grader came rolling up.  The driver is supposed to be smoothing out the shoulder of the road, but as you can see in this photo he detoured to the center of the road to avoid getting too close to the horses.

Naturally the horses scampered from the road up to the grass to keep a safe distance.  I guess the driver will smooth over that section of the road on his return trip, perhaps when the horses have moved.

Today is Earth Day, and we should take note of the importance of man living in sustainable harmony with plants, animals, and our natural resources of water and air.   Costa Rica and Bhutan compete for being rated as the happiest places on earth, and they are the two countries closest to being carbon neutral.  Is that a coincidence, or is living in harmony with nature an essential component of human happiness?

Today is Sunday so we have new photos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.  This week we are showing photos from our trip last month to Bhutan in the Himalayas.   We have wanted to go there for years, and it was well worth traveling such a long way.

A moment of elucidation for two kinds of mammals. See what can happen when everyone works together. We can stay safe and still get the work done!

That sweet little colt is learning the rules of the road. Nice to see the care the driver is taking to stay clear of the horses.

Good to watch out for animals. The colors of the environment show up so nicely in the photo.

I'm still having trouble after all this time to get into Julie's blog. Tried lots of different ways, and it just doesn't work!
