Will I ever get stuck on a muddy, snowy wilderness trail again…..? Of course I will, but that’s part of of the fun!

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…..
Where the wild things are…..
At our Colorado mountain cabin, we have two game cameras. They are motion triggered, set on a creek near a beaver pond and regularly frequented by wild animals of all sorts. On some weeks, the cameras capure over one thousand photographs. We regularly see moose, elk, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, coyotes, bear, bobcat, owls, hawks, great blue heron, beaver, marmot, rabbits and more. We especially enjoy the spring when mama moose, elk and deer show up regularly with their babies.
Here is a sampling of wild visitors, who kindly left their images as they stopped by. Continue reading “Best Game Cam Pics”
