    Oh the mistake we make in trusting the little vermin.......... One only needs to have watched "Caddy Shack" to see how devious the little vermin are. :evil

    :clap A minor spring(ish) day- made it into the 40's

    snow melted fast- I could see over the snowbanks along the driveway

    Some fog developed as the snow melted, balmy 44 degrees will do that :wink:

    Long flat run out toward the northwest- promontory area. Little potential for ice on a north face out there

    Again went out northwest, but now the snow has cleared off the dirt :clap
    Cool, upper 40's and windy.

    I should at this point, introduce "Mr.Salty", a new mascot, generously donated by this year's secret santa (Hawk :wave)
    [​IMG]

    Gravel over clay- some gravel swim but quick, the clay was tacky :D
    [​IMG]

    Coyboy Junkies played "Driving Wheel"

    Mr Salty approved

    A few miles later, "cowgirl in the sand"

    That speck middle right is a golden eagle :clap, she was on a fence, bolted as I stopped (sadly the camera was in a distance mode)

    Headed east into an area called the "Salt Wells"- a dry clay crust in the summer, winter and spring turns it to a shallow dry lake

    "Sloop John B"- had been awhile

    "Man in Black"- Mr Cash :cry
    [​IMG]

    NO other vehicles for over 1 hr out there
