|Looking out front from our cabin, and yes, that's our truck!|

This Aspen tree is frozen solid and holding a good 1-2" of snow.
This is Bunsen Mountain peaking up over the clouds. We've hiked it once or twice every year. The road is closed to that area until May. (Thank God!!)
A good looking guy and Electric Peak. And no, that hike requires 2 days to reach the peak, too much for us. Check out the snow on the deck railings.
And I'll wrap up the posts with this 'feel-good' story. We were taking the trash from the cabins to the recycling area and saw two official ranger trucks stopped at the drive entrance. As we watched, a female got out of one of the trucks with what looked like a rifle and walked toward this large herd of elk and fired.
We were devastated, continued down and unloaded the trash and in coming out, this same ranger stopped us. What she had done is to shoot a sedative dart at a male that had robe wrapped all over his antlers. They were keeping everyone still until the sedation med took hold. After about 5 minutes, he went down and they moved in.
They tagged him, removed the first dart and cut the rope off. She had also told us they had a reversal shot to give him once they were through. We saw him later and he was up and walking around. Even though the animals are all wild, this herd was more concerned about their male leader, than the rangers. This was the happy ending we were hoping for!
We will attend church for Easter morning and then hit the road toward home. We wish for a Blessed Easter season for all.
