    I am not sure our furnace has kicked in other than to heat the hot water. And we live in Maine. This Global Warming must be real - and it was probably caused by the polar bears because they were tired of all that cold.

    After all, they too deserve a warm day once in awhile.

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    I'm not a big fan of a lot of snow here in North Jersey because it really just makes things miserable. But, I can't stand it being so warm this time of year. I'm out and about still wearing light clothes and just a vest, go figure...

    Default Warm Nov.

    The only good thing about this weather is that we're saving on our heating and electric bills

    Default lots to love about bare ground in late autumn

    It's still autumn, and I love to be in the woods late into the season without snow. You can see into the heart of the forest, as some famous poet said.

    Here's a few scenes from the past two weekends...


    found the remains of a bull who died a couple days prior...the tracks of coyotes told a story. The got a well needed meal...








    Next hike, 5 moose in a day hike. a beautiful bull about three miles in...





























    I was about 4 miles deep when I heard the mating call of a cow moose. I crept through the woods toward a large marsh, following the sounds, but just before I got to see them I slipped and made a noise that they heard and the cow and two young bulls went crashing away. Here are the two young bulls...










    this one looks like a yearling...






    here's a view of the bog and surrounding mountains, which I think is pretty without snow...





    here's another bull, about a mile away, up on that mountain...










    a view from that slope looking across the boggy sag toward another range...


















    poor fella...






    he sure had a huge rack...









    This is prime time for off trail hiking, IMO...

    Thumbs up

    You're a skilled man, Patrick. Bushwacking like that is no easy task. Hats off to you.

    And outstanding images as usual.

    Patrick, do you manual focus most of the time? With all those trees around my lens would be hunting.

    Very nice photos Patrick! In the first photo, it's amazing to see how quickly the coyotes, and other animals I suppose, strip the moose down to its bones.
