Walking softly and carrying a big stick


You never know who you'll run into on the trail. Here's one of our favorite Labs showing off a new found stick. Casey can't quite see the infatuation. He's going to fetch that thing?

Extrasensory perception




Huh, what.  OK, maybe not ESP, but Casey has a sixth sense for a camera being sighted and focused his way, REM sleep or not.

Solstice tree












Daylight seemed to be sliding away with every bend of the interurban when Casey and I reached our objective, what we like to call our Winter Solstice tree. Seems every year a mystery hiker or hikers keep this tradition going, and while it might not meet department store standards, it's a Yuletide standout for us.




On this shortest day of the year our glitzy spruce will soon succumb to the solstice gloaming, but we'll be back. It's especially impressive after a snowfall and we'll even have a few more seconds of sunshine with each visit to take it all in.
