The trees block the breeze and the breeze keeps the mesquites down significantly. There will be much to do when the snow melts off because I could only get at the easy stumps. The giant 'man killer trees' had numerous buttress roots which made cutting to ground level nearly impossible. We are looking forward to a better summer season with the improved view (fantastic) and the hopes of fewer flying pests.

Here's a shot of Boss blowing out the carbon on the field out back. We did a lot of walks on the hard pack trails I put in with the snowmachine back in December & January.

I look at this picture and my heart breaks. Down to just my 10 year old Lab but had Sandy and Husky. During the warmer weather down to the lake every day for ball tossing (well, Husky would only 'wade') and in the winter up on Mt. Ashland. There both were in their 'element.'

Have a picture in my bedroom of the two charging across a snow field with the inscription: "Run Puppies Run!"

Husky passed just after his 13th birthday; his ash box is on my desk. Was going to spread his ash on the Mountain, but just couldn't bring myself to do same. 10 years of .. of .. of ... Sorry, I've got to take a walk and pull myself back together.

"The cabin is 74 miles by snowmachine & 78 by boat due to different routs for them. This would be 74 miles via frozen rivers and a trail across the big swamp beyond Skwentna Alaska. There are no roads in this part of alaska so it's either snowmachine, boat or aircraft to access. Our place is just off the Iditarod Trail."----HardyReels

I can appreciate that. I have been on an isolated ranch in Colorado in winter and Oddly enough, I have heard of the "Iditarod Trail" but I just don't know where I read of it. Seventy Four Miles in? Oh my gosh. Does that mean when you snowmobile into your cabin, you camp out one night in the Alaskan Wilderness?

Back, but too deep in history.
My Aviatar is Husker's giving me a slurp with a his huge tongue. Three of us fished and I'd give the run a rest, and all three of us probably needed one.

Flaked out on the beach with close to 200 pounds of fluffy puppies on either side.

Good times, good times, God times? Me thinks, me thinks.
