Fall is almost over

Had a nice trip up Skyline today, It had been a month or so since I had been up so it was good to be back. There was a dusting of snow on top and I saw a Porcupine,Grouse, and a load of Ptarmigan. There was also an odd gathering of small moth looking rascals. They were all hold up in the underbrush, but when they couldn't handle the wind any more they would all flap around chaotically. There were thousands of them.
Hope all is well

Slaughter Gulch

Yesterday(Sunday) I hiked up Slaughter Gulch trail which is directly across from the mountain in the previous post, you can see it covered in snow this time. I have spent the last month in the Cooper landing area, re-discovering all the great trails and amazing scenery in the area. I have really taken a liking to the Crescent lake area and am getting excited to spend more time up there. Not having an airplane has really forced me to enjoy what we have here in our local area. We are the lucky ones!
