That Time of Year

April 05, 2017  •  4 Comments
Since I've been joyfully watching many snow geese and swans fly over my home and watching them down on Lake Helena, I felt it was a good time to share again some photos from previous years at Freezeout. I will say I think I have seen more around the Helena Valley this year than in previous and it makes me very happy. We are happily getting ready f...

Eagle Patience and Rowdy Ravens

March 26, 2017  •  4 Comments
We were kind of hoping the eagle would take flight to get over to the carcass when the coyote left. Nope, she ran her little legs off and high-tailed it over that way. Now these two spent a good half an hour flying around arguing about everything. It was rather comical actually so I had to try to capture them.

Coyotes on Carcass

March 24, 2017  •  5 Comments
I warned you - if you are squeamish this might not appeal to you but I think all can appreciate that this is the way life goes in the wild. We pulled off where there were a bunch of folks gawking at one of the marsh areas in the valley. Then they were looking across the road. What? So we look over the edge of the parking area and right there at the...

Geyser Birds

March 23, 2017  •  2 Comments
These two were quite a surprise as we walked up to the lower geyser basin at Mammoth and we heard birds. Took a while to spot them and I was amazed they were playing around at the bottom of the springs. Of course I didn't have the right camera but still was pretty happy with the shots I got. I definitely have a new appreciation for their camouflage...

Are You Ready for some Road Trip?

March 19, 2017  •  3 Comments
Admittedly things have been pretty quiet and dark around our home for a while and I can say I was very much looking forward to my annual winter Yellowstone trip with my buddy Robin. Unfortunately our original date picked ended up cancelled due to horrific weather so we backed it off a week and had fabulous roads and weather to o-dark-thirt...

Sadly Another Tribute

March 15, 2017  •  9 Comments
The emotional toll that has been put on my household this past month has been huge. Not 3 weeks after Bandit's passing, my Magic-man gave me the sign that he was really done with his broken physical body and I had to make the decision to help him achieve his wish while he still had his dignity intact. I cannot still think about him being gone witho...

Trailer Update

March 09, 2017  •  1 Comment
Can you tell I'm really getting excited about vacation? As you all have figured out I don't tend to "leave things alone" much as I find things that work in the trailer and don't work or can be improved. I mentioned a few months ago that I was embarking on a new Ramp Project! Again, I wanted a ramp that both humans and dogs could use and feel safe...

A Woofers Update & Food Change

March 08, 2017  •  1 Comment
I've got a number of posts to do so decided to kind of split them up a bit here so I don't bore everyone. This one is canine related (as you might have guessed). MT Waggin-land is busy even with the loss of our beloved Bandit. Hospice care still goes on for my other 2 seniors and Magic I am starting to see fail and don't think he will be with us t...
