Spring in our steps
We are avid walkers and hikers. When Spring arrives we are eager to get out and enjoy the intense new green popping out everywhere, the critter activities and feel the warm return to the landscape.
There were Deer aplenty in this visit. Both Whitetail and Mule deer. We didn't see any with fawns though... Upon our arrival at the Yonderosa we had two Moose in the meadow. I believe they are the same two our neighbors snapped a picture off last year when they were calves. Gangly creatures but sure fun to watch.
Critter tax - a number of Lodgepole and Ponderosa Pine seedlings and saplings had their terminal buds browsed.
Red Birch is a favored browse for the Moose and Grouse.

This is the realization of a shared dream. The challenges my wife and I have overcome, our partnership and the surrounding natural beauty make the achievement even sweeter. We know we are Blessed. Life is Good!
