April Visit Update
A quick update. I managed to get over to the Yonderosa for six wonderful days! Even though I went solo I enjoyed my visit and accomplished a number of tasks including getting (and passing) the framing inspection, I managed to get the materials for the siding and soffit, installed one of the windows, chased some turkeys, saw lots of deer, a number of cool birds - Mountain Chickadee, Clark's Nutcracker, Goshawk, Yellow Bellied Sapsuckers (many), Ruffed Grouse (drumming)...., The lake was still frozen but 99.9999% of the snow was gone from the Yonderosa. The sound of the Kirby Creek was a pleasent backdrop to the chorus of bird songs. BIG Moose! WIDE variety of weather 80*F+ down into the teens, even had some snow fall... Discovered a Sub-Alpine Fir -Abies lasiocarpa - on the property... More later.
