Tax prep officially completed.  Now, back to real life…IMG_0999

A quick update from the last few weeks from the back 40…the dipper pair is now defending its territory against a third, roguish individual.  I wish we could tell males from females, but there doesn’t seem to be any colour differentiation.  And, there’s a beaver creating its own little pond back there.  The trout are beginning to show up and we’ve spotted two, hanging out in this freshly created pond…neat!  As for spotting the beaver, the closest we’ve gotten is to see a tail slap.

Our Bozeman paper warned that it’s time to start carrying bear spray as grizzlies are beginning to wake up in the Gallatin Range – i.e. – Beartrap Canyon (see a previous post).  And, of course, those rattlers must be soon.  Guess MD and I’ll stick to the Bridgers.


About walksandrambles

My love of walking began in 2005, when, travelling with my Girl Scout troop to Switzerland, I joined a group of Norwegians for a day, to walk up Elsignenalp. I wasn't at all sure I could make it, but the guide was kind and through her encouragement, started out. It was an all-day affair for me and I was always the last one, but this didn't matter a bit...I'd found my new love! No photos exist for this...the camera went missing on a train...but I remember toasting myself with a cup of tea from my thermos at the top...it was a day of tough work and pure pleasure. If you walk, you know what I mean!
