June Tree Check

We went walking Sunday morning in the field and wanted to share a picture of our tree with the June leaves. Well, and the hu-dad wanted to prove that he had actually mowed our field.

We walked to the other end of the field and took this picture, which gives you an idea of how big the tree is. Look to the left of the tree and you will see the red team walking.

Turning around, we looked over at our neighbors - Cataloochee Ski. Looks like some work going on, so we went down to investigate.

Woo - now THAT is a plumbing project! They are installing some new water lines and snow guns to further enhance their snow making abilities

So for all of you sweltering fans, we will have skiers on these slopes in five months - or sooner. THINK SNOW!

    Hop hop hop…Spectacular view any time of year I would suspect. And a form of therapy! Friend of mine used to live in Manchester, VT looks very similar. Have a great weekend!

    Over time, I’ve grown fond of your tree too! BTW I don’t know if you recall, but you left me a comment when I left my pack during a hike. You said that it was very Siberian of me. I want to say: I am honored. Thank you very much!

    That is one hooge tree! I know you guys love it but I am not a fan of snow. I hope we don’t get any ever again. I am much happier sweltering. Mom on the other hand….

    We never doubted that the Hu-Dad mowed it, really! Maybe you need to add a herd of goats to help with that! Snow guns sound very intriguing right now!

    Wow, that must have been a lot of work for the huDad – wouldn’t it be great if you did what the wild dingo suggested.

    Snow guns??? Can we get them at WallyWorld? We sure could use some snow with all this heat here.

    Wow! Love that tree. It’s huge!! Snow in 5 months…I’m afraid we’ll still be having heat waves. Good thing Kona’s no sibe =)

    hu dad needs to put in a husky fence around your field so you can romp and roll in it! booowhahahah… wild dingo loves to give directives for more work… 😉

    That is one HUGE tree in a HUGE field! There are skiers on the Cairngorms even in this lovely June weather!
    We are not sure how that works – we saw them when we flew over – of course we can fly, can’t you?

    After the yukhky weather we’ve had this week, I would LOVE to see snow on those slopes –

    Even I don’t stay out long!
