Well it’s been another quiet week up here on the mountain, my little slice of heaven.
April is here, and with it some warmer weather, though it seems the rain will be with us for a while longer yet.
A mountain lion was spotted down by the spring where we have been parking our pickups.
As the road clears of snow and ice, we move our trucks up closer to where we can get the snowmobiles to. This makes for a shorter trip in the morning and afternoon so we don’t have to spend that much time getting rained on.
The talk around the old loggers table this week has been about a Bigfoot sighting about a week or so ago, when a woman from a town south of us hit a deer and told police she had been looking in her rear view mirror at a Bigfoot and didn’t see the deer. This story somehow made the paper, and a lady from California wrote a warning letter to our sheriff telling him to take this sighting seriously. It seems this gal and her boyfriend were about to set up camp in some woods and were accosted by a Bigfoot that threw rocks at them until they ran to their vehicle.
So now, tongue in cheek, the county is talking about making the county a safe haven for any Bigfoot that might be hanging around.
They figure it will give a boost to the tourist industry and put the county on the world map.
If there are any Bigfoots out there, and if they have access to the Internet, my mountain is as safe as anywhere. Come on by and we can have coffee together. Just a thought.
Well that’s all the news for the week. Bye for now.
