wolf pack


We spotted this small wolf pack leaving the Pot Belly cabin.  These are the moments when I wish for a decent camera.

The Pot Belly

 We love spending a winter weekend at this cabin.  It's pretty much our dream home; small, simple and cozy.

good times!

Barred Owl



 This was a rare treat. A Barred Owl successfully hunted a cottontail rabbit in our front yard.  I bolted to get my camera not knowing if the owl would stick around for very long.  The kill sight was close to the road and the occasional car forced this bird to take flight.  Thankfully, it was able to finish it's meal before the neighborhood dogs caused any trouble!

An aerial view of the 1,877 people who participated in the “Make Your Mark: Angels for a Cause” event at the University of Minnesota Duluth on Saturday morning. The group’s goal was to break the record for simultaneous snow-angel-making. They fell far short of the 8,962 set on the state Capitol grounds in Bismarck, N.D., but the crowd had fun just the same.
