Christmas Eve.... Checking the trapline

 -27 C.  At 12:30 we both got ready and off we went to check Walkers Valley Line. 
 This year there are lots of Grouse.  This one was scared up out of the snow where it had been sleeping in it's warm hole.  They dive down into fields of deep snow.... then walk in further away from the hole.  There was three in this bunch.

It's about 2 pm and the sun is just skimming the hills but we sat and had a coffee for 20 minutes soaking it up.
 Lots of Marten sign.

Warming the hands.  Our feet got a little cold.  We are going to try out the Bunny Boots we have. 


  1. You will like those bunny boots,nice and toasty and waterproof. They are all I wear now, all winter..

  2. More beautiful pictures! The snow conditions look just perfect for you too.
