At my present location, we don't get to see many large or exotic wildlife because of to many preditors and the Pebble Mine with all its blasting, helicopters and planes operating in the immediate area. Because of these activities we have to travel many miles for food. That only happens if there is enough snow on the ground.
Also, I haven't been on the computer all that long and the majority of my photos were taken long before the digital camera came along.
This little guy is in the tree just outside my window. He kept making loud noises so, I went out see what was going on. Turns out all the birdfeed was gone. I filled the feeder back up and he is a happy camper.
What a beautiful morning. Mornings like this with a good cup of coffee sure makes living here well worth it. Sunrise was at 9:31a.m. and it is -4 degrees. The lake has frozen back up and makes for good traveling. Little tough for walking, gotta use ice grippers. No telling what today will bring.
This weather has gotten crazy, last night it was raining quite a bit. This morning I woke up to 40 degrees and light rain. Today, the temp. got to 44 and although it was cloudy, the sun was out enough to brighten the day up. I went out to check my water hole and there is about 8in. of water on top of the lake ice. I have a feeling we will have an early breakup. These pics are from today.
If the grass shows anymore, may have to break out the lawnmower
This is one of the most beautiful back roads anyone can travel on. I have been going there every summer for as long as I can remember. I remember one time, someone I had met on the highway, he said to me, "you are the first person I have ever met who leaves the remote BUSH and comes here for a vacation". I never thought about it that way. I will tell you, if you ever want to get away from the hectic life, this is the place. It is about 135 miles long and most of it is gravel and potholes. But, I love it. There are some services along there but, you should make sure you have extra gas and a spare tire, maybe two. LOL
A friend of mine flew up to my property and took pictures from the air. To put it in perspective here are pictures in the summer and winter. What a difference.
Heck of a difference, wouldn't you say? This weekend, he and another guy took snowmachines to my property and got stuck a couple of times and when they reached the property, he said the snow was practically up to the waist. I may have to buy a snowblower on tracks or find a woman who likes to shovel. LOL
