Friday Matt, Mark, Skip, Bob & I went over to the hunting camp on the West Sacandaga River where Skip holds a membership. View East from the porch:
We got to the camp around 10am and started a fire in the wood stove. We sat around and talked for a while and fed the fire until it was going nicely. We strapped on our snow shoes and went for a short walk along the West Sacandaga. Group shot:
It was a nice mixed woods and on our return we saw a flying squirrel. Mark and Bob each saw it fly/glide and all except Matt saw it sitting in a small beech tree.
Skip and Bob returning to camp:
In the afternoon and evening we played pitch and ate chicken stew. The wood stove kept the camp very toasty. We turned in at 9pm and slept until 7am. It rained overnight and the heat of the wood stove combined with the warming temperatures caused some snow slides off the metal roof.
Saturday I got home a little before noon, showered and put away my gear. It was Kathryn’s birthday and we went to a movie – Charlie Wilson’s War with Tom Hanks- out to a nice meal and were home by 9pm.
