Cool Morning 2014 New Year's Eve

This morning we awoke to a little frost, -21F  at 7:00 am.  I guess you can call it cold when it is at least 20 degrees cooler outside than in a typical chest freezer.  This is at least the third time this cool this year.

Hardware Ranch Logan Utah

Grandma treated us to the wagon ride to see the elk out on Hardware Ranch Management Area up Blacksmith Fork Canyon Utah.  The bottom two pictures are of a cottonwood tree the beavers were in the process of cutting down.  Julia, Tyler, and Sheila are in the photos out on the refuge.

Snow and Frost Before Christmas

Even Jack got frozen.  Christmas Day added another 2-3 more inches to this total.

One That Got Away

There are two photos of this deer posted at the bottom of the last entry.  It was fun to watch this guy just 20 yards off of the road just 15 miles from home. 

Some Of The Locals

All but the last two photos are of different deer.  I took a drive about 15 miles out of town westward and found these guys just off of the road.  This evening I saw dozens of shootable bucks and about 300 deer total.

Decent Deer Burlington Wyoming

This guy is fairly typical of ten other bucks we saw while elk hunting off the highway between Meeteetse and Burlington about fifteen miles from here.  All together, we saw three to five hundred deer and about twenty to thirty other bucks along with the ten.

Cold, Cold, Cold

Cold weather has come our way early this year.  This morning the thermometer on our porch was at -14 F.  As you can see, it is 7:30 this morning and is beginning to warm-up its now about -12 F.  The projected high for the day is going to be around 7 degrees above.  It's weird to think that the present temperature outside is colder than our freezer.

Mountain With A t View

I took this video today working with Big Horn County Weed and Pest.  .  It overlooks Shell Canyon and Ranger Creek Campground in the Bighorn Mountains.  What a view!

Spraying CanadaThistle in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming

Working for Big Horn County Weed and Pest has its advantages.  This week we were working in the Big Horn Mountains spraying Canada Thistle on a ridge south of Ranger Creek near the Bench Timber Sale.  Below is Shell Canyon, what a view.

Beartooth Highway

Yesterday afternoon we started up the Beartooth Highway ( One of the highest roads in the world) with a summit at just under 11,000 feet.  Time ran short so we didn't make the summit.  It's only about a two hour drive from Burlington.  The Beartooth runs Red Lodge Montana to Yellowstone Park.  Most of these photos were taken just a little above the 9,000 foot level at a rest stop.  Red Lodge is a beautiful little community.
