November 2010

Today I walked for a few miles up the canyon of a nearby creek in a light rain and much to my satisfaction found the beaver colony there to be active and flourishing. It was unusual to walk in the rain at the end of November. The above photo was taken on November 26, 2010; a more normal year.

Favorite face

Of all of the wildlife in this area, I think the Mule deer has the prettiest face:

A very strange fall

Filed under: Autumn — Tags: , — montucky @ 9:26 pm

So far it has been a very slow fall, with just a few colors showing and very mild weather. Due to sub-zero temperatures coming very early last year, we had hardly any color, but according to my records, the year before had a peak of fall colors on about the 19th of October. I am looking forward to the next couple of weeks.

Mt Silcox (8)

One last look around from on top, a brief stop at the lakes and a couple glances back up the trail and my posts about Mount Silcox, the Goat Lakes and Trail 478 are concluded, but the memories of the place will be with me forever.

Mt Silcox (7)

Although as I hike I often look back down the trail for many different reasons, it still seems that when I finally do start the trip back to the trail head, all of the scenes have changed. The Mt Silcox trip was no different.
