Gowganda today

Here is a couple of pics of the highway thru town showing how much snow we  have.  I have been leaving the snow blower idling in the garage.

More snow today

Snowed on and off all day today and not going to let up until tomorrow. Not much  inspiration these days at all.  Haven't been on the snowshoes this year.  The foot doctor advised me that my foot problem may have been aggravated by the snowshoes, so I have stayed away from them.  Anyway these are the two springy horses down at the town beach barely showing their heads.  The snowmobiles are just missing them.

I caught this Redpoll snoozing by the feeder in the warm sun, I should have joined him.

Winter Logging

Logging is at work all year round, right now they are just finishing up on the Everett Lake Rd.  The workers have been at it since the fall, right now they are by Babs Lake.  Jack Pine, Spruce, Poplar and Birch are the main species  Pine and Spruce for saw logs and Poplar and Birch for chip board. All species are transported by trucks to different mills.  Elk Lake has a mill for lumber and Englehart has the chip board mill. The chip board mill takes in 100 truck loads a day from all over the area to keep it working.  Here are a couple of pics near the latest cut nearby.

More Pics from yesterday

Pictures from Everett Lake and road up to tower  A bit of open water at Miller Creek, looks as though a otter went for a swim.  The chickadee is from the tower road.

Duncan Lake

Great day today warm almost felt like spring.  Our groundhogs couldn't come up through the snow to see his shadow or not.  We always have six more weeks of winter anyway.  A couple of pics from Duncan Lake the other day.  One I may have gone a little overboard with.
