Winter Is Here…..

I am at my 8,500′, (2,600m) elevation cabin preparing for winter.
At this moment, the temperature is 28F (-2 C) with winds at 40 mph (65 kph) velocity. The weather is blustery, but the beautiful sunset makes it worthwhile to hike to the top of the nearby ridge.

Tuesday 8″ (20cm) of snow is forecast along with -6F (-21C) evening low temperature.

Real winter has begun…..

Here is a sampling of wild visitors, who kindly left their images as they stopped by.  Continue reading “Best Game Cam Pics”
