June 2009 - visit

Anytime at the Yonderosa is a blessing, even a short visit. We arrived Friday night and we were greeted by a thunderstorm complete with HEAVY rain, and lightning strikes all around us. It delayed our unpacking but the show was quite spectacular from the shelter of the porch.

Moose visit - Repost, see previous entry

The nearby State Land is being logged. The Forester I spoke with said they are almost giving the logs away. Because of mill closures these logs had to be hauled to mill over 3 hours away.

Over Memorial day weekend a visitor left a campfire burning that ignited several spots on the 20 acre parcel NEXT to us! WAY too close for comfort!

The wild strawberries were just starting to get ripe. Pea sized but SWEET!

The Temperatures reached the mid to upper 80's so Kirby found a way to stay cool.

Yarrow prefers napping in the new Shower/Kybo room...

Finally photographic evidence that Bigfoot exists. See him up there on the mountainside right next to the tree?

Happy Labs are wet Labs.

Of Moose and Men

Just got back from the Yonderosa. As usual, too tired to post much now but want to share a few teasers to get you to come back for another visit.

So there we are sitting on the porch, enjoying a glass of wine, talking about how good life is when "Hello there.... we have a Moose." says my lovely wife.

I grab the camera I have at the ready for just such an occasion - I really wish I had Mona level skills for this encounter - and I fire off a shot through the rail hoping to capture a picture of the Moose.

The Moose was good enough to stand there for a while and allow me a few more shots. Had I been less bumbling and more patient he might have ambled right up to the cabin for a proper portrait...

Our neighbors thought he bore a striking resemblance to another moose they knew named Gus and perhaps he was Gus Jr. Whoever he is we're glad "Guswinkle" visited the Yonderosa and posed for a few pictures.

The neighborhood reports are the Fishing is Great! The Critters are abundant and the weather has been awesome. I've tied some more flies and readied my gear. Can't wait to get back!
