Webcam Photos

Posted by: Rick

Back in early January we noticed the camera had been knocked off the window sill. Neighbors checked the cabin and, sure enough, we had a pack rat. I think we caught the problem in time that not toooo much damage was done. Rick went up and cleaned up the various collections and set live traps. We caught two rats, a bit male and a female and nothing since. So, the camera is back in place, although somewhat out of focus for now.

Here is a webcam photo, updated every 5 minutes or so, that shows the current weather conditions the cabin:

Looking west toward Bull Mountain:

Great to see you back.
New email for me, bye bye Yahoo.
No CV at that cabin.


Hi Rick and Lynne—just wanted to say I’m glad you’ve resumed your blog and I’m glad you’ve turned comments back on! I’ve wondered how you all were doing in your cabin and I see you’re back in “civilization” for part of the year (right?). But I’m glad you’re also still up at the cabin in warmer weather and enjoying the moose and the wild asters. You’re giving this city dweller a much-needed taste of wilderness!

Steve! Nice to hear from you! I still read you, but I just can’t comment. It wants me to use a Google log-in which I don’t have ... so ...
