Just a couple of videos

Quite a busy day today. Had an early phone conference about ranching stuff, had to pick up some parts and supplies and do a few hours work on the Bobcat and hydraulic Ph.D. (posthole digger) in preparation for a big fencing project, lifted and then ran stadiums at the high skule which is closed for the year now, did a short hike to decide where to replant trees, had lunch with Snow Girl, then spent several hours writing.

It was very windy during the tree hike, and Red was quite interested in the olfactory presence of coyote.

Here are some tracks. The knife is 4.5 inches long, and my size 11 boot print is also there for comparison. Big coyote!
Two or three days old.

The wind was fierce!

Sharp tailed grouse everywhere.

The glaciers are losing their grip on the trees.

Smells like spring? Smells like gin!

How did the wicked witch put it?

Glaciers be like, "what she said!"

Isandlwana Glacier is, well, gone.

And now it's time to lay me down to sleep. Busier day tomorrow. Busier is good.

Be well and embrace the blessings of liberty.


  1. Did my mile walk today with the dog without a coat. 68° for awhile with a 10-15 mph breeze. Nice, but winter isn't over and I remember April blizzards.

    1. Good one! Walks are great and dogs make the greater! :-)

      And yes, April blizzards. They're great too. Especially to look back on in July!

  2. Are you sure that those are coyote tracks and not wolf?

    Thanks for the post.

    1. They're big, aren't they? Of course they were put down in wet mud which always leave a larger, stretched out track.
