Work and Wildlife in the Park

How About This Weather
It has been incredible and great for hiking and spending time in the park. We hiked Red Cliff Trail yesterday so that I could snap a few photos of the work being done.
Looks like they have everything bundled up to work inside through the winter.

Been Away for Too Long
  It has been almost three weeks since my last post on this site.  We took a great trip south and now I am suffering from some arthritic pain/swelling that is making it difficult to type.  Hopefully, I will be back to normal in a week or so, by the way, not playing any golf is starting to get worrisome also.  Guess it is all just a part of being nearly 70, but that doesn’t make it better. This post I am doing a bit of typing and a little hunt and peck with my good, left hand.
Spent a few hours at "Old Town," in Dodge City, Kansas while on vacation - wonderful museum
Wildlife Watching
Maybe the lack of traffic is the reason that there seems to be more wildlife out and about than usual.
We drove into the park from Hartville and followed Lakeshore Drive to the parking area for the main boat ramp. Counting the wildlife each way, we saw more than a dozen Mule Deer, does and fawns, several nice bucks, one bunch of 29 Turkeys and another flock of eight, and a Bobcat.
This was the first Bobcat we have seen in the park although we have often found signs.

What a Nice Day
Since I will be in Casper for meetings the next few days and inside all day long, looks like a hike in the park this afternoon. The day is turning out beautiful – perfect outdoor weather.
The Super Moon last night was very nice

Get out and enjoy your local parks and walking/hiking areas, the calendar says winter is still on the way.
