A partial view of the Teton Range from Pine Creek Pass and a nice, wide, muddy shoulder. YAY!
Anyhoo...I ran up and down Pine Creek Pass yesterday. It was a beautiful day and the sun poked out. We had rain and warm temperatures for a week and the snow has melted an incredible amount. Melted snow on the road side means exposed treasures! My next post will be one called "Things that look like money". Yesterday I found: no money, a dead, mummified puppy with no legs (gross but compelling to look at), a femur and knee cap with no other body parts, 2 Spanish music CDs, a bottle of Nexium and a big car magnet, lots of beer bottles and cigarette butts.
Some pictures from yesterday...
Signs of spring. The four foot high fence is melting out of the snow and the Spud Cellars are seeing some action.
More signs of spring. Along the side of Pine Creek Pass there's some dirt.
An unconventional Osprey nest. Next picture is a close up.
For years, this nest has been made out of baling twine. One year, the Osprey got caught in the twine and was hanging upside down. Fish & Game has to come and disentangle it. Only in Idaho.
The neighbor's chickens taking a stroll on the newly exposed dirt.
