TURN SOUND ON !!🦉🦉🦉 . Barred Owls and Sandhill Cranes . Amazing sounds and was really happy I was able to record the Owls going back and forth when they were so close. They reside in the surrounding woodland🌲
Found this interesting chunk last spring, from my understanding it is a nice piece of Jasper 😯⛏ . The make up of this is unlike anything else I've come across in my finds. It fascinates me, it could look as if thousands of particles and shapes were suspended and packed in place by some sort of translucent mineral. In some areas you can really see this sort of particle-resin looking formation that I tried to highlight. The colors are also very vibrant in some areas, reaching to more red than the maroon/purple that is throughout. . The photos are not edited and some were taking in both warm and cold lighting 👍📷 Interested if anyone has thoughts on this or knows more ✌
One my best and personal favorite finds from last Fall. Excited for more to come 😎 the photos are not edited...👍
🏕✌☀️🐦 . Found this massive bark round that was littered with Woodpecker holes, looks pretty neat with the sun shining through.
Captured this during a very picturesque evening out by the fire 🌲❄🔥 . From a few weeks ago when we only had inches of snow.
Throwback to the early stages of the camps development. ⛺🌲🔥 . This photo was taken in August and looks attractive in comparison to the frozen and snow filled version that it currently is. ❄
The dry and protected work space at the debris camp ⛺🌲⚔ . This was the first structure I had built at camp, and it marked the start to something much bigger than I had envisioned. . There wasn't much of a plan when I started this building and lashing process. It all started with an idea to have my own place in the forest, now that I had some free time on my hands. I knew I wanted a dry space to stand underneath, have a place to rest, and set my gear down. . The original thought was something that had the convenience of an open-face design for the easy access and to allow material to be brought under the tarp for processing. I just simply began with a structure and went from there. This has turned into my protected work place and the first spot I come to set my gear down and take a drink. . Following this first project everything there after was done more thoughtfully and involved further planning. I was actually in the contemplation process for a while before starting anything and at one point I decided to ditch a blueprint and just start. . I plan on continuing this evolution process of shelter building and this coming Spring I will certainly re build and improve upon some of the structures at the camp.
The constant chore of clearing the snow out around camp ❄💪 . At this point there is a solid wall of snow surrounding the encampment. The feet of accumulation has been a welcome addition of material to build with and in turn has changed the vibe of the whole camp. . Looking back in the heat of August, I was looking forward to these times of Winter and the drasticly different appearance the camp would take on with the snow and frigid temperatures. . The time is now and I'm loving it 🙌
Fresh powder revealed the moment this bird of prey swooped up a little snack from below the snows surface ❄🐀🦅 . What a brilliant sign to stumble upon. I've seen these before in books but never came across such a fresh and cleanly left print such as this one.
A brisk and snowy evening accompanied by a cooking fire, stew filled Dutch oven, and a cozy stove-warmed shelter ❄🔥🍜⛺🌲
