Ogden Utah Winter
« on: February 13, 2008, 01:59:12 PM »
Regarding my envy of you who are already walking on green grass and checking the pollen intake of your hives, here are 2 8 Feb 08 pics of the conditions here.  This is in Ogden Canyon along the state road that leads to the Pineview Reservoir . . . my home and bee yard are about two miles west, and about 500 feet lower in altitude.  The old aluminum speed limit signs that I shield my hives with summer and winter had, up until I cleaned them off on monday (48 degree day for peeking through top feeder grate)  30 inches of snow on them.  I have a pic somewhere.

Notice lowered head and raised hair??  Snapped shot just before the yearling charged!  JP

J, (I am going to call you J, because we already have a JP here, or any other suggestions for your name?  hee, hee,  :) :) :)  What a beautiful, beautiful two pictures.  Put them in the photo contest forum for sure.  The picture of the moose yearling was astounding, wow, as pretty as snow is, I like the green, green grass of my home, that stays green all year round  :-P  Have a wonderful and awesome day, your spring will come.  Cindi

That moose looks like it has an attitude problem directed at you.  ;)

I thought I had responded to this post but see I haven't, anyway, really nice pics, love these scenes with all that wonderful snow! I haven't been around snow like that for almost 20 yrs. Didn't notice that young moose would charge.
