Google Earth view of the trails at Cardigan Hideaway

And these

Jackpot on the critter cam!

Earlier this year, Ric took the critter cam to the top of the property.  We had seen even the first year we owned the property that the moose were bedding down up there in the winter.  Yesterday, he went up the snowy slope to change the card.   He not only saw two moose up there, we have many movie clips of moose!   Enjoy.

Well, it's almost spring at the yurt - more like mud season up there.   Went up today to start doing some spring chores.   Took up some vinca for the slope next to the yurt, and a bunch of raspberry canes - they're overgrown at our house, so we really need to get them going up at the yurt - I'd hate to move up there and have no raspberries!   I'll do some more digging in the garden and get some more up there on Sunday.   And dig out a bit more vinca for the slope.   MMM. . . next?   Probably rhubarb.  

Also took a walk up there today with dog along the road.   Some some HUGE turkey tracks right done one side of the road, but lost them before we got back to the property.   Also saw a tree across the street with a HUGE pile of fresh wood chips at the bottom from a woodpecker.   The pile was probably two feet deep.   All in all, a good day.   And Monday, it's going to near 70!   Yippie!
