Harvest Time Joy
Mother Nature and her merry makers’ moon shadows play across water and sand.
Mating with the wind, the ancient common fire spirals loosely, dancing starward.
Rising close, the harvest moon, swollen and bright, watches all from beyond the nearby pines.
On the shore, backs to the dark, eyes roll back, necks lengthen, mouths posture.
Hill Dog’s chorused howl travels the night.
Hill Dog howls at his full moon.
What April showers brought and left behind.
Early spring’s rainbowed pale green blush.
The second day of Spring finds the Elk Mountain Area blanketted in eight inches of snow.
March 13th and 14th is time for the Elk Mountain Spring Carnival. This year’s theme is Masquerade.

The guns at the Big and Friendly are putting out huge amounts of snow.
Fire? What fire?
It was snowing, it was raining, it’s snowing.
The Hill Pup sees snow for the first time.
