And So It Ends Again..............

Posted 11-09-2013 at 03:39 PM by Hardyreels

Once again November eighth has come and gone. The date not only marks the turning of yet another full year or another page in the book that has been my life, it heralds the head long run into the coming winter. Now I have 59 years to reflect upon and almost 54 of them I can remember in the outdoors.

My father started me out as a child trekking the mountains of a then very different North Central Pennsylvania. I was drawn to the tiny streams we would cross as we made our way back then...

Mother moose Shot in Denali Park, 2 Calves Orphaned;

Posted 06-11-2013 at 10:21 PM by Hardyreels

If you read the story about my 2012 encounter with a brown bear you know that it came down to spraying the bear with Counter Assault Bear Spray and I am alive and well.

I heard this on the radio and looked it up this evening; Moose shot near Denali National Park visitor center | Alaska Dispatch

Sorry, but I would never shoot a momma moose with 2 babies, period. I think the legalization of carrying guns in Denali is a mistake. It is a National Park, one of the only places...

It took until March 18th at 2:30 AM before I saw a display of the Aurora but I was dressed and outside by 3:00 and then took the snowmachine out to the back field to get some shots.

The show lasted for hours and I made many changes of lens's and settings as I enjoyed the -14* morning air.

It Wasn't All Northern Lights;

Posted 04-13-2013 at 09:37 PM by Hardyreels

In early January Nancy got herself a new Ski Doo Skandic Super Widetrack snowmachine. After riding it out she took my Tundra LT back when she went home and left me this to test out.

I was amazed at how these things will crawl through the thick woods over 4 - 5 feet of powder snow. They have a 156" long by 24" wide track under them that is like a giant snowshoe. The skies are 10.5"...

The Long Winters Work At The Cabin;

Posted 04-11-2013 at 05:24 PM by Hardyreels

Like many of the entries here this will be a multiple part story. I'll identify the pages; Part Two, and etc. until we reach the current time.
The story starts back on December 22, 2012 and I stayed out there until March 27, 2013. Over this time I did a lot of work but somehow it seems there is still so much to do that I'm not sure I'll live long enough to finish it all. I do intend to try.

Getting ready to leave home for a long trip into the Bush country is stressful, at...
