Red-tailed Hawk Suju

This is Suju, a colleague and friend of mine here at Foothill Horizons Outdoor School where I work. Suju is the Me-wuk word for Red-tailed hawk.

I am learning how to work with her and introduce her to students.

Snow at Foothill Horizons!

Snow! What a rare treat at Foothill Horizons! These students were very lucky to experience it. Some of the staff couldn't make it to work on time because roads were closed, so we combined classes. This group built a snowman and took some time to eat plenty of snow. It was light and fluffy like cotton candy.

These two boys were the coolest!

Notice that the snowman is a Giants fan.

Wow, do you think the kid in the red coat is going to eat all that snow? Since it's so light and fluffy, it's easier than it looks, but still... it looks like a lot.
