They have found that discovering new vistas at their own pace is worth the pain of spotty Wi-Fi and scarce hookups that come with traveling in remote sections of the country. One of the best perks of traveling by Airstream is being able to stop as needed to track down birds at varying elevations and habitats. Jeanette has an ornithology-focused zoology degree from Northern Arizona University. When she later pursued her J.D., she was drawn to Lewis & Clark Law School for its strong environmental and natural resources program. Is it any wonder that Jeanette now has a thriving environmental law practice that blends scientific study, natural world experience, and legal expertise?
While in the scenic town of Sedona, Arizona on their second outing, Jeanette received a lesson on the parenting style of Black Hawks. After spying a pair bringing food to a nest not far from her campsite, she moved in to get a closer look at the fledglings – she was promptly dive bombed by one of the parents perched nearby. Who says bird watching isn’t an action hobby?
With two interstate Airstream trips in the books, Jeanette is having fun mapping out future routes and creating bird-spotting lists. At the top of the wish list is a visit to Oregon’s Wallowa Mountains and Painted Hills. Loops through Bryce Canyon, Zion, Yellowstone, and Grand Teton national parks are in the works for next fall. Beyond that, the road is wide open!
