Observations and (mis)adventures of a city lady's move to the mountains.
Now look at all this fun stuff you missed out on when you lived in the city! Did you kick it off to the side so you can go back later, clean up the skull and keep it to hang on your shed?
In the city these things are always way fresher and killed by a 4-wheeled predator. Didn't have to kick it out of the road since the chances of a vehicle driving on it in 15 mins were pretty dang slim. That's one of the benefits of living on a private road that is also a loop.
Huh! Dragged there by 'yotes, perhaps...? My personal fave was the time I went camping with my dogs, on a piece of property up above the Weiser River. It was summer. A bowhunter had hunted, and successfully killed (but not RETRIEVED) an elk the year before. I thought the smell of dogs-who-roll-in-cowflop was bad, but...nope. Not. Even. Close. It's true, what they say- things CAN ALWAYS be worse! ;) And I couldn't convince my canine geniuses to get in the river and wash up. It was still a pretty good camping trip, though. The stinky dogs were able to stand down an angry black angus bull who disliked my camping at his river-fording spot, so it was all good. :)
That was my thinking, coyotes or maybe foxes which I think are a lot more prevalent around at least at this time of year.UGH! Why are dogs SO DANG GROSS? C'mon already with the rolling!
It feels so good to read comments! If you're leaving one (or more!), THANK YOU! If you're not... c'mon, already!
