Lookin' for Wildlife

We'd heard through the grapevine - small town telegraph - that a moose and a bear had been seen at the neighboring lodge this morning, so when we finished our work we grabbed 'the boys' and headed for the mountain to see if we could find our friendly mama moose and her baby.  I got all excited because just at the top of the first switchback, we spotted a very dark back side of an animal - was it the moose?
Not quite, as we got closer the heads came up and they turned to face us.  A tad smaller than moose, but very pretty anyway, and perfectly willing to wait for a photoshoot.

We continued on for a long way, just enjoying letting the horses mosey in the sunshine.
As you can see, we were a bit lazy about our gear, so it was probably a good thing we didn't come across anything too dangerous.  In fact, about the most excitement was Ranger going under a branch too low for Bill and knocking his hat off, which called for a short discussion....
Farther on, we did come across a few trees that could use a chainsaw.  This one is right at head height, so we had to go around; the Forest people won't like too much of that.
Looks like Beel and Ranger are back on hospitable terms for the rest of the way home.
Great day!

  1. Glad the nasty weather is finally clearing up. Can't wait to get back up on the trails on Sunday.

  2. Oh, finally! Great day, great ride! Yippee~! I wish I could have been there right beside you! Drat the luck. And I thought mowing my grass was fun. LOL

  3. looks like the weather cooperated even if the trees didnt!


I had to turn verification back on. Ten "spams" an hour is making me crazy...
