Tyler is feeling better after his bout with the flu so this morning we took a ride up Southfork just out of Cody. Southfork is the southfork of the Shoshoni River (Native American Name: Stinking River). This area is a known wintering area for several types of Big Game including Bighorn Sheep, Elk, Deer, and Bears. Just after a winter storm is the best time to see the Bighorn Sheep, Deer, and Elk when they are driven down to the valley floor. Tyler and I also discovered that many people Ice Climb in this area on many of the frozen waterfalls.

Christmas at Grandma Mortenson's was fun this year. The first photo is Julia and Tyler opening presents, the second is J.P. letting Julia ride his horse in Ogden, Third is a copy of the Leg Lamp from the movie Christmas Story (can you believe someon is Logan had that in their window) and pictures four and five are of Julia and Tyler having fun while sledding in the park. Logan got over a foot of new snow while we were there.
Picture 1: I don't know the story behind this piece of art and sorry that it is a bit out of focus.
Picture 2. I was told Glen used chalk for this piece of work and it only took a few days. Glen
enlarged a Greg Olsen picture for girls camp.
Picture 3. Two nice bucks Glen drew.
Picture 4: This portrait of Roy Mortenson (our father) was painted some years ago. The photo it
was taken from is in the lower left corner when dad was a kid. Grandma thought Tyler
looks a lot like his grandfather. Tyler's school pictures is the color photo.
