The limb on this oak was over a foot thick but still no match for the unrelenting weight of the snow.
Another huge oak roughed down and buried by an avalanche.
Wild Turkey tracks , I wonder where they might lead.
Lucifer thinks that it might be the home of the legendary Sasquach . I didn't have the heart to tell him that it was just the light from a hand torch that I had hung on a line and then swung over the edge and into this snow cave to get this rather eerie shot.
One could almost imagine a white Unicorn standing below this great oak and grazing on ice crystals.
Here at night after the frost has formed it's like a magic world covered in jewels. Sometimes on walks in the moonlight on dead calm nights like these I really don't want it to end.
Not much to take pictures of around here cept SNOW. I have never seen a winter with so much hoarfrost, mind you the relative humidity has at it 's lowestr been 84% since Dec. first and last night was clear as a bell with the full moon but the humidity was 100%. This afternoon the wind came up for a few minutes and poof it was all on the ground. Instant snow storm which lasted perhaps 2 minutes.
Had a fantastic walk in the bush by moonlight last night, it's a strange world up here at night. The coyotes were simply wild in their warnings, perhaps a Cougar or a bear was on the hunt. I will have to take a walk in the next few days to see what all of the fuss was about.
If it's a bear perhaps I could stake Sky to a tree, maybe draw him or her in nice and close, yuh know so's that I could get some really nice close up pics of some of the things not to do when there are bears about. Letting someone tie you to a tree would be one that springs to mind.
