Saturday Strolling

Saturday was one of those beautiful winter days.  Temperatures were cool, but not frigid.  And the sky was cloudless.  Clouds rolled in late in the day with flurries, but the morning was spectacular.  And so we went strolling out to our favorite tree up to Cataloochee Ski and just enjoyed the weather.  Hope your Saturday was as nice.

Our favorite tree framed against Cataloochee Ski.

Cataloochee Ski was having a spectacular day - and was not too crowded.

Cheoah is showing her true mountain spirit with a long blade of grass tucked away for future use!

    It was that kind of day here as well. Now we’re back in to the thick of it. Am I crazy for loving the weather fluctuations of winter?

    Hey, you never know when the grass-chewing urge might hit!

    Never a bad time to collect emergency provisions – just in case…

    Looks a bit brisk for me!

    What a beautiful day to climb in your Mountains! But we are thinking we have more snow in Iowa than you do still and it hasn’t snowed here in 7 days which is a record! Your Saturday walk looked great!

    You never know when you might need a piece of grass!

    It’s important to carry a piece of grass. You know, just in case.

    Cheoah’s been doing stuff to get attention, recently. What’s up with that? You can’t starve her for attention. Something’s going on…
    And a serious plea for help: While I’m away in France, Frankie’s facing some extra dangerous situations. Could you kindly help out? I know you’re experts on the subject. BOL

    Beautiful! At least you guys have snow! Ours just melted, and all those Southerners in places like New York and the People’s Republic of Delaware got more than we did.

    It’s amazing how many balls and toys get recovered when the snow melts…

    It looks like another lovely day in Herdland! Pssst! Cheoah, what’s the grass for?

  17. Mimi & Cabana on February 28, 2010 at 9:58 am

    You can see and feel the crispness of the day in the photos. Amazing!

    It looks spectacular. A perfect day – snow, sun, and a stroll with the dogs.

    I loved the story that you left on my blog. Have you ever heard of “Frozen Dead Guy Day”? It’s in the town closest to me where a dead guy requested that his body be kept in a tuff-shed surrounded by dry ice forever, or until a cure could be found for what killed him. The tuff shed sits in someone’s back yard…

    The town made a festival based on it, and NPR reports on it every year (it’s March 5-6 this year). The whole thing is the pinnacle of “mountain-crazy”, I’d say.

    Looks like a perfect day herd.. grass blades to prove it!
