What an exciting day yesterday was! It started with me getting a new (to me) mountain bike! I am so excited to ride the trails this summer on a full suspension bike. Oooooo, aaaaaaaah!
From that point on, it seemed that every few feet another grouse was making a mad dash across the trail. I guess I finally found where they were all hanging out this winter. A little further down, I interrupted a male grouse, passionately displaying his fancy feathers to any female who might pay him attention. In his shock at my approach, he froze on the trail, allowing me to capture a couple of photos.
Kesten was still happily playing in the snow, pushing his stroller around with my husband right there.
