A day snowshoeing with hu’mum Part 2

This is part 2 of my snowshoeing adventure with hu’mum, Uncle Pepe and Trish from Australia. We were on the hunt of a Golden Eagle. We have had sooooooooo much more snow since I was there. In fact so much snow you can’t actually get to where we went BOL how can there ever be too much snow?

After my excellent recall I had a little snooze

And then we saw the Golden Eagle still sat on the rock. Hu'mum wished she had the big camera and lens with her

An’ here I go again on my own
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known,
Like a hobo* I was born to walk alone
An’ I’ve made up my mind
I ain’t wasting no more time

Yeah I'm having so  much fun
Yeah I’m having so much fun
That's right Uncle Pepe follow me, like a hobo indeed!

Just checking to make sure you are all coming this way

Only kidding hu'mum, I'm on my way to you

Back into the forest, back on the lead, back to those smells

Wow look at all these logs they didn't manage to collect before the snows came. We could make a cabin.

I guess the idea of making a cabin was too much for them, so we headed back to the car instead.

Tada, so that was my fun day in the snow. I sure hope you enjoyed coming along with me and that you all have some snow to play in.

    I love your photos of that day up high in the snow. It sure looked warm… no jackets? That’s a wonderful winter day!

    I have the same horizon problem… but in your mom’s case, it looks like the horizon really wasn’t level!!!! It’s rarely level in the mountains 🙂
