The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Timber!
Russell and one of our neighbors
took out the Oak tree that was growing
next to our bedroom balcony.
We begin the construction on our addition
to the house next week and the tree would
have been in the way. It was not a large
tree but the root system would have impacted
the foundation. This removal also enables Lucy
to be able to go outside without getting into trouble!
We will be adding a main floor master bedroom and bath
which will make the house more usable for us and
will make it more marketable for the future.
(no- we are NOT moving anytime soon!)

yep- there's a little snow up there- that's Mt Eddy and it's the highest summit in the Trinity Mountains of the Klamath Mountains. It is 9025 feet high! So it should have some snow!!!
We are at 3500 feet.

Lots of wood there for roaring log fires - or perhaps a wood carving of your own?
