  1. Mimicry turns into hilarity and I can’t stand the funny.

    The Internets tell me this is from the Olympic Game Farm in Sequim, Washington, an animal sanctuary.

  3. I love this vid so much that I’m pretty sure I account for about 1,000 views of it. Please enjoy.

  4. Lookout, here’s some dog awesomeness coming in hot. Prepare to giggle.

    I don’t know who Lily is, but, apparently, she’s a little bike-chasing rocket from where I live, Park City, Utah. I hope these folks do a follow-up vid with a Lily cam. I sure wanna see what the world looks like from her perspective.

  5. Ceiridwen Terrill provides an intimate look into the souls of captive wolves in this month’s High Country News. This long read is available in full at the link above.

    The piece will surely make your heart ache for a species that longs to roam wild and free. Even more, it’ll make you wonder if we, as a human species, will ever realize that this planet has room for everything.

     
     
  6. Hilarity ensues when wild animals are brought on late-night show Chelsea Lately with Chelsea’s fill-in host, Ross Matthews. Stick it out through the whole clip because the last part is the best!

  7. These fellas’ are xenophyophores, one-celled organisms that live in the deepest, darkest depths of the ocean. Their single cell is four inches across. Think about it, that’s nuts!

  8. Mary Sojourner sends chills all the way out to my fingertips with this short read. Check it.

     
     
  9. Human men, spiders have solved the mysteries of seduction. Have you? ;)

    I love science because we learn stuff like this.

     
     
  10. Vacation! VACATION! Er, life is a vacation. Right?
I took a three-day weekend last weekend to play in the red rocks of the Moab area. I ran the 50k at the Slickrock races. It was a crazyfun weekend spent in the desert with old friends, new friends, sun, rain, mud, sand, a gigantic Great Dane named Scooby, bonus running miles, and course re-routes because of a “quicksand situation” that involved the full-on sinking of a jeep (This is true!), and good, old-fashioned good times.
I took this photo while hanging out at the Gold Bar Aid Station (I think this was its name.) on Saturday afternoon and night, waiting to cheer my friends running the 100-mile race. Props to everyone who pushed themselves out there last weekend!
There’s more! Tomorrow I head to the Smoky Mountains for a seven-day backpacking trip. I cannot wait to go deep into a mountain range I’ve not yet visited. See you on the other side of awesome.
