Over the years Bruce has made some major piles of dead and downed aspen, many of which have been really tall trees. He has decided this year that he will use the chain saw on one of the larger piles so we can get it "out of the way" and in use this coming winter. He cuts them to manageable length and then he/we put them on the trailer and bring them down to the wood shed area. Then he cuts them to length and if need be, splits the larger ones ... all by hand. I do the stacking!
The pile is getting smaller, little by little. It is a back breaking job.
After all of those snowy pictures that I posted over the last many months, I thought that perhaps you would like to see what it looks like in the spring time. We take the German Shepherd's to this point each morning on our walk. Gypsy stays home...too far for the old gal these days. The mountain on the right in the distance is Harrison Peak; the one on the left, Raspberry Mountain. The lake is called The Big Lake! No fish (too shallow) but it sure is pretty.
It sure is nice to see "green"...no more white for awhile.
Bruce and I both will be making postings on this blog from now on....so keep an eye out!
