Firewood perk

One of the many things I like about heating our home with a wood burning stove is that I get to go to places like this to cut firewood.

  1. Sorry about the funky comments Terry, I think I am having a spam problem and I am trying to correct it as we speak. BTW nice image.

  3. Yup. As they say, “it’s a tough job but somebody has to do it”. I never take this for granted and never will.

    At daylight in the morning I’m heading up a trail I discovered that should yield some good scenes if the hike doesn’t kill me. It goes up 1,100 feet in the first 1/3 mile, but then levels out at about 6,200 feet, nearly 4,000 feet above the valley. No matter what, it’ll be worth it.

  4. I think I am up and running now, what a great scene, kinda makes work a little easier when you have a view like this. BTW what kind of camera equipment are using Terry and do you print your own stuff out or do you have it done for you? I would also like to link you up to my blog if you don’t mind?

  5. Glad you’re back, Bernie. Yes, I love the high country. Brought back a bunch of pictures again today from one of the peaks. I’m paying for the hike right now, but still worth the price.

    The camera I’m using is a Kodak Z712 IS. They just came out with it and I received mine on May 1. It’s 7MP and 12X optical. Still figuring it out, but it has a lot of capability and is pretty easy to carry on the long tough hikes. Pretty fast to get it into action too. (I got some neat shots of a Coyote today but didn’t get it going quite quickly enough for a huge White-tail buck.)

    You know, I’ve never printed anything or had any printed yet. I have several candidates though. My emphasis this spring and summer has been to get out there and get some decent shots while I can and maybe do something with them during the winter.

    I would appreciate a link very much. Thanks!

  7. Even though I’m used to it, it always fascinates me that a little haze in the air turns everything in the distance to blue.

  8. It’s neat to see your appreciation of the surroundings while you are out working out your existence. Nature is a beautiful thing we just have to open our eyes. You have experienced sights that others never will. Keep the wonder.

    • Thank you for stopping by and commenting, Ron! Yes, nature holds great beauty: I wish more folks could see it.
