Tag Archives: Patterson Lake

Lately we have had lots of nice snow days, interspersed with bluebird skies and cold temperatures. Perfect winter weather. Today I took the girls out for their own private photo shoot in a snowstorm on a frozen lake. I think they thought it was not such a good idea and we did not stay out too long. It was pretty. I like the unfocused snowflakes and the unfocused dogs.

Another day in the woods with my dogs.

November 1. How did that happen? October has been very colorful and also very wet. I’ve heard rumours that we have broken records for the amount of rainfall. In the mountains where we hiked earlier in the month, the trails are covered with a foot or more of snow. I’m glad we got out when we did. Here in the valley we should be able to hike in the hills for another month or more.

The power company had a scheduled power outage yesterday. It was a good excuse to go for a long walk in the woods with the dogs.

What’s more fun on a hot day than time spent at the lake? While Mary and Gus were here we went to Patterson Lake a few times. She brought one of her new stand up paddle boards so everyone got to try it – me, Ken and even Sky! It is not the kind of thing Luna wants to do. Mary and Gus already are experienced with this water sport. With only one board, someone was always throwing sticks or balls for the dogs so everyone enjoyed the water.
