More cabin snowy fun

Karie feeding one of the gray jays that hang out when we come around. I buy chunks of beef tallow from a butcher store and Tim cuts it into little pieces. The birds eat seeds, bugs and probably peck at carrion if they can find it. They are not starving - they just like an easy meal. None of them actually seem to eat the tallow, they just fly off and stash it in a tree somewhere for later use.
Action shot of Kari riding the Tundra.
Action shot of Sweetie riding his Summit. He likes to get out in the fresh powder and make tight circles and zig-zags. Here he's is in such a tight circle you can see the bottom of the machine....sometimes he tips the machine so far over that he falls off and has to climb back up out of the snow.

The "reflector" tree. It's a small scrubby sitka black spruce covered in reflectors. It's kind of a crossroads where several trails meet and there is a placard with directions if you are lost or just need directions. Someone mounted an old phone booth out there. Kari tested it out for us....she looks like she's hatching from an alien egg!

My silly dog likes to sit on feet - she does it all the time. Here she is sitting on Tim's bunny boots.I still have more cabin pics - I'll be posting them for a few days more. I hope you are enjoying our trip as much as we did!
