A Cat Compared and Some River

A couple of days ago I posted a picture of Yoda that neighbor Gary painted for me.  Last night I was looking through some old photos and found this

 It's an old picture of Yoda and so similar to Gary's painting it startled me.  He really did capture Yoda!

Gus and I were out taking a run yesterday (he ran and I rode) and took some photos of the river.

Upstream from the dam it is pretty frozen now.

And freezing below the dam.

Still some flowing water which may or may not freeze as the winter progresses.  It isn't very deep here.

 We went up stream to the west meadow and got some sun and snow and rims shots.

And another of the river.

Gus is behind me on the 4-wheeler now.  He got down after I told him to load up and stay.  I promised I would apply super glue to his little feets if he even thought about it again.  He wants to get in the river and doesn't understand the ice and safety problems.  No swimming until ice is out.

We did see a few tracks, deer, rabbit, and coyote, but not many.
The wind was cold and we didn't stay out long.  Gus got to run most of the way back home.


  1. Great photos, thanks for sharing, and I thought I was cold here, well I guess I really was since it was below freezing last night, got to listen to the big wind turbines in the orange groves across the road all night. All water troughs were coated with ice this morning but no snow here, just frost.

  2. I love getting out and about, even if it is cold and nasty. Your photos are great. I am enjoying getting to know your area!
