I had planned an early morning lake paddle but it was in the teens when I got up, far too cold to be paddling. Hans had called the prior evening and offered to cut down my two dead trees. I called him about 10 and he was at the house in 25 minutes. He dropped them both and we ran some errands.Later in the afternoon I was on Lake James.

The first shot was from the Dysartsville overpass. I was there and it looked goodOnto the Blue Blaze Trail and The Linville River:
I hiked until I got to a section of trail that was covered with snow deep enough to cover my boots. I ended up with wet socks but it was worth it. It was really cold and windy at that altitude as well. That is where I came across the tracks above. I think it was a cat since there was no claws showing. I think the size of a Bob Cat.

The girls woke Clare Ann and me up at 5:30 to pen Christmas presents. Noel was back asleep by 7:30 but I was ready to get on the move. I called Gaston and Layla after a nice blanket of snow had laid down on the ground to see if they wanted to get out. We met up an hour later at the Blue Blaze Trail head.

Back in the Saddle on Christmas Eve with Layla, Gaston, & Obie. I was excited to be out after a long break and with a refurbished O-ring: A GREAT Day!
