I hadn't been out much this week so was determined to go somewhere. I thought i would go up the mnt behind my place, Perry Ridge, and stop at one of my lunch spots and then head back. For this i'd need snoeshoes on so i took them along till i got to the top of my land partners driveway, put them on and headed up the mnt.
I have to say its been 4-5 weeks since ive been going up the mnt on a regular basis, snow makes it so much harder, and i definitely had lost my edge. I was breaking trail in 16" of powder and moving at a snails pace and i had too warm of pants on and was sweating like a pig . Have to wear my river pants next time. Another shot farther up.
I got a little ways up the mnt near one of my lunch spots and said "good enough", sat down and cooked up some Black Bean soup, Man i forgot the Focaccia, still it was good. Rested for a while and headed back down but not before seeing this,
That made my day. Lynx tracks coming straight up the hill . Elk tracks all over but this guy was after rabbit .
