Very pleasant encounter

This little guy paid a visit here this afternoon, which was very surprising because they are highly nocturnal and therefore seldom seen. In fact, this is the only one that I have ever seen. What a thrill to see him right up close!

Settling into winter

After sub-zero temperatures all of Saturday, now the snow has started to come in. After removing about 6 inches of it today, I look forward to seeing even more tomorrow and tomorrow night. What a beautiful winter it is turning out to be! Here are a few pictures from a hike today. If nothing else, I have a very happy dog: he loves the snow!
