April 16th and romping in fresh snow!

Ya, you got the right.
I had to survey the area before we headed out.
The snow looks great!

I spy vermin in the woods!

Finally, the slow pokes are going. They said skiing was great.

I mostly hunted off-trail.

I can really fly now, with my nice short springtime haircut!

Spring Shave and More Snow!

Sandy thought I needed a cut to celebrate spring.
She says this helps keep the mud outside.

I don't think this is anything good for trail mutts.

Ya, this makes me nervous!
 The next day I was outside and spring snow storm started up!

We still got a good base here.  No mud!

Good thing I'm a snow dog.   We might get  10" in the next 24 hours.

Hungarian Falls spring snowshoe adventure!

With the spring melt happening here, Mark's gang thought is was time to visit these wonderful falls. 
Oh ya, I get to be social with people AND other trail mutts!

Up we go and we were glad to have snowshoes on.
  Of course,  trail mutts don't need any.

We stopped at the top of the taller falls to take pictures.
There are many falls along here.

Best part was Franee did scratch me some.

She lost her pole over the edge and Mark went
down to look for it.  It looks like this Mark!

At the top.

Me and all the mutts had such a nice time.

The Bridges and Skiing of Swedetown Gorge (no movie!)

My pack wanted to check the bridges in the gorge out for high water damage. Frankly I'm glad to get out and run, because we just don't do much around here!!
This is Sisu bridge.
We spied some damage here.


Up stream, we checked out the middle bridge.

The cribbing Mark Roberts and his crew added last fall,
 seems OK for now.

We'll be replacing this one in the fall.


Ya, my favorite creek is up.

What we call the National Guard bridge seems fine.
This one we worry the least over.

Still some tracks left.
All-paw drive don't need no stink'n tracks!

Now at the Dam. (long ago washed out)

Cribbing here seemed OK.


Dam meadow bridges seemed OK as well..



What happen to the snow mushrooms??

Sandy checks the bridge near Tomasi ditch.
You won't get me no closer to that edge!

We had such a nice spring ski together.

Arly closed the trail gates this week.  We can still romp here, can't we?  I think so!
My buddy Terry sent us this photo.  He's on the Sikuliaq in Lake Michigan this week.
Terry scratches my ears when he's here to visit.  I love that!

Pilgrim River ski in 50 degrees!

Ya! I got my pack out this afternoon and we ventured to my favorite Nara trails and Pilgrim river.
I smelled a mouse!  I caught one once.

We looked down the valley towards the Pilgrim river.
Lets go this way!

Ya, its warm out but I still love these spring romps.

We zoom down the hill.

Almost there!

Ya, the river is up.

Sandy says some spots are soft!

Should we cross here??
No way a conservative dog will do that!

This is the same location earlier this winter.
 Here's the post it's from.
Someone found bugs to eat.
This is Pileated woodpeckers at work.
At this link you can see what they look like
and hear their call..

Arly took his skis off so get up a melted hill,
but he needed them again. 

We had such a nice ski in warm spring weather!

Ski down Swedetown gorge with Marks gang!

  Ya we had such a nice romp with them and all the friendly trail mutts.

Oh ya, Dale will scratch me some and I'll tussle
with Bella at the same time!

This gets me cranked up,  more people have arrived!

It was so warm out, I had to roll in the snow.

We had such a nice time.  I'm a social dog ya know.

I showed the good way to cross the creek
We spied this fellow pecking on a post.
Not to eat but to say "this area is ours!"..
