Lake still open

The main body of the lake still has no ice and the weather is holding up.  Up to Edith Lake yesterday for a few pics.  Here are some ice rings.

You can run but you can't hide

Here is a Snowshoe hare from today, he looks a might damp too.


After yesterdays ice storm and today's drizzle it's about time for some sunshine.

A bit of ice on the lake

Yesterday AM the north arm of Gowganda Lake had a skim of ice from side to side, this AM the ice had retreated.  The mist was rising from the lake early in the AM.  The cold air and the warm lake mixing.  Pretty soon it will all be white.

Back from another trip

This time some deer hunting in the Parry Sound area, deer were scarce this year but wolf sign was everywhere. Had a good time but no game was hurt.  After that it was a trip to Toronto, to a Photoshop Seminar right down in the heart of the city.  Haven't been down there for many years much less being on a subway.  Survived and had a great time. Thanks to Lauch and Ruth in Toronto and my friends the Pecks in Sequin Township.  Just a few pics of downtown which has grown so much since I was a kid down there.

Firewood finally stacked

Finally got the firewood stacked a couple of days ago, glad to see the end of that.  The rows are 24 feet long, 2 feet wide and just under 5 feet high.  I figure there are about 6 bush cords of wood stacked.  Lots of wood for a couple of years or more.  Just have to cover it now to keep it dry.

Another Yukon favorite

This pic with the sun shining on the poplars on the banks of the Ogilvie River, with the mountains for a backdrop is one of my favorites.

ATV trip on Sunday afternoon

Paul and I were in a couple of new cuts on Sunday afternoon, one up the east side of the Everett Lake Rd just north of the highway and another on the Miller Lake Rd. Lots of big trees cut some over 100 years old by the the rings counted. That's around when the mining for silver started back in 1909.
Another find at Miller Lake is this old Ford truck right in the middle of the cut, notice the bullet holes in the window right where the driver would sit. I hope that's not how it got there.
