rain or shine

Its kinda fun that the weather here is sorta like Florida’s. Rainy one moment and sunny the next, just much colder.

Went hiking behind the lodge again a couple of days ago and have decided to no longer participate in that hike until grouchy grouse season is over. Every time we go up he seems to be getting more and more aggressive. This time he actually met us 2 hill tops away from the bench where he usually harasses us. Hopefully it will warm up for a little bit so there will be more hiking options available that do not require tromping through the snow.

I have concluded that it is a blue grouse. I believe he has concluded that he will be drawing blood next time.

The rest of the horses have arrived! Went into the horse corral area for the first time yesterday and met some of the horses. I am still uncertain of the need to ride thee se animals… but hopefully a little more time around them and I will be more comfortable with the idea.

the cutest one I have noticed so far is Tank, but I am leaning towards riding Butch. He has been recommended as a good horse, and lets face it, Butch/Cassidy could be an unbeatable combination.

    Wow, seem like pretty aggressive birds.

    Too bad there isn’t a second horse called Sundance Kid… 🙂

    Maybe the chef could prepare grouse for the guests. Soundslike they would be easy to get. Actually, I think you must be hiking very close to their nests and they are trying to keep you away.
