It was a big relief to feel the relative tranquility this morning.
Shyla was a much happier dog without being in danger of being blown away.
After a fairly rough snowbike ride with Shyla, navigating deep snow drifts and a nasty wind-blasted snow crust, I decided to go rescue a trail camera that I'd left on a cold and snowy north-facing slope. I wanted to move it to a place more likely to have wildlife traffic at this time of year.
The trail camera was completely submerged in snow. If I hadn't known exactly where it was, I wouldn't have been able to find it. Here was a photo it had taken after being buried in snow. I'm guessing that a small animal had burrowed into the snow, triggering it to take photos.
It was a good day - one that ended with the second spectacular sunset in two days. Here's yesterday's sunset.
