Notes Of Interest and News
roads are all bare and the lower parking lot is mostly dry. There
is one area in the lower camp parking lot that is coned off because it
is soft. There isn't any snow around except where the windrows were. Seems the GPS for the road to
the campground off the highway is wrong, depending on the make of your
GPS, it's not even showing it as a paved road but a trail. Google
maps has it properly. We don't have any seasonal sites left.
New trailers are all moved in except one. A
lot of seasonals were in this weekend opening up and staying

Nothing new at the feeders lately. We haven't had any Evening Grosbeaks, Redpolls or Pine Siskin's at our feeder for about 6 weeks. I don't know where they are. We have large amounts of Pine Grosbeaks. March 6th- Crows arrived. March 15th- Redpolls are back again. March 20th- seems the Pine Grosbeaks have left and have been replaced by the Evening Grosbeaks. April 5th- We have a young Barred beside the cabin. The Jays were hassling it and it went to the ground. I picked and put it into a place in the branches, where the birds could not bother it. April 13th- Common Goldeneye, Tundra Swans. Redpolls are gone now and no southern birds here yet. April 19th-Broad-wing Hawk.

Junco's were at the feeders by the hundreds. April 21st- Two

PLANTS & ANIMALS, ETC.
A There lots of bush rabbits around. Large numbers of deer in the campground this year. We had a couple of Otters in the upper campground. There have been wolves around most of the winter, not bothering anything here. March- Seems there are quite a few wolves around. April 19th First bees and butterfly. May 6th- We planted 120 coniferous trees last Saturday and will be planting another 30 this Saturday. Ticks are out Apr 30th but not like last year so far. May 2nd- The odd mosquitoes around. June 1st- Fire flies are out. June 10th, Flying squirrels. A black bear was hanging around the area up until the last four days. Oct 25- There are a couple of beaver around, some muskrat. Rabbits seems to be reduced in numbers. We have to cover our young pine so that deer and rabbits don't eat them. Dec. 31st- Fox, Grouse and deer tracks in the snow. We have had so many does and young around this year, it is nothing to see 11 in the camera's at one time. Go figure, it's natural, there are quite a few wolves around now.
