    Say hello to my leetle friend....and a little woods wandering.


    ADVERTISEMENT
    He's one of the many chippers hanging around camp this weekend enjoying the wild bird seed I threw out for them.
    Surprisingly(or not) there were a lot of different birds too.
    There was even a family of Peregrines(3 total) darting around trying to catch some of the birds,but they wouldn't sit still for pics.
    I didn't see them get a bird or chipper,but they sure tried & there was a lot of squawkin' going on for awhile there.


    Later on I went for a walk & found this old tree layin' there & was amazed at the rock still stuck in the roots after all these years.





    Further on in my perambulations I found myself following this deer trail & wondering what was around the bend....



    Don't you love the anticipation of seeing what's just around the bend or over the next rise?
    I sure do.


    Ahhh,a rock formation...a great place to take a break.
    Didn't see any deer up there though.


    My main blade for the weekend...the Rule #9,riding in a sheath I made for my SYKCO War Dog.
    Not a perfect fit,but it did the job.


    The rule #9...bigger than a mountain.....


    As I was heading down the hill to camp I ran across this little river of sap running out of a tree root.




    Despite the fire ban a good time was had by all.

    Great pics ! I never thought of scattering bird seed when camping, does it work most times?

    Oh yeah,the critters love it.
    I see a lot of different species of birds.
    I had to buy a bird ID guide I see so many & the chippers love it too.

    Nice post Mykel -

    I was just up in Washington and Oregon - I love the pine forests - the smell of the fresh pine is just outstanding.

    What? You haven't ordered one yet?
    Rest in peace Bill. I wish I could have done more. You are sorely missed.

    Definitely.

    I'm still trying to figure out the river of sap on the ground.
    Could you see it coming out of the root?
    We don't have many pine trees around here.. Maybe that is normal.

    Sorry,not the best pic,when I was up there July 4th weekend it was just a little pool right below the root with drips coming off the root.
    Now it has flowed down the slope a little better than a foot.
    It is partially covered by dirt & needles from,I assume,critters walking by.
    There are deer & elk tracks all over & they follow that trail right through camp sometimes.(not to mention the squirrels & chipmunks scurrying around.)
    The sap flows because of the heat.

    I forgot to mention that the sap doesn't actually flow so you can see it moving,it's a very slow progression over time,like a glacier.
