We awakened to the first snow and a feeling of serious melancholy for me. Autumn snow does that to me, together with the inevitable tough stuff that life throws our way.
It is amazing, however, that Shyla's enthusiasm for life almost always rubs off on me.
Or, when I fiddle with my camera, she does a "stay" like in the photo below. In case you're wondering, she's staring into the area where the mountain lion killed the deer. Shyla is a good dog - what a temptation sits out there! The coyotes should finish off the bones soon, making the forest safer for our pups.
And, it started snowing again. Because the aspens have leaves, many trunks were bent all the way to the ground. Believe it or not, this is a trail that is normally clear and wide. Leaning aspens blocked most of it today. Some were uprooted due to the 18" of rain a couple of weeks ago and very wet soil. I love aspens so I was sad to see the uprooted ones.
