I hate to tell you, but we haven't seen any "Skunk Apes" or "Bigfoot" (or would the be "Bigfeet") on the mountain. All we are have are boomers, birds, fox, coyotes, and bears. I am sure other animals come through at night, they are shy.
Thank goodness there was no snow this morning. It was sleeting and spitting snow balls when we went to bed. I had visions of an accumulation for the morning. It is currently 37 degrees and dry.
I have trail updates. ACB trail is fine, Boulevard trail has a little ice on it, nothing that can't be passed. Trillium is fine. Rainbow has a pretty big blowdown that you have to crawl over. As for Bullhead, I still have no word. If you hike up or down this trail, please let us know what it is like.

I thought I would share a peek of my world. As you can see, it is a great kitchen to work in.
