That's what I thought. The Uinta basin is the best place in the state for wildlife of any kind. Over Thanksgiving my family went to Vernal to visit my Brother-in-law and we drove around and looked at some deer. I can't tell you how many really nice bucks we saw but there were at least two bucks that would get your name in the record books.

A friend of mine had a depredation tag for him and his daughter. So I tagged along to give him a hand. Just our luck all the elk we saw were out side the boundary of the unit we had a tag for.

Yeah but you still had a major cure for cabin fever. Here because of the great lakes the majority of our winter is cold, grey and a kind of damp feeling. We have occasional days with skies like in your pic. What a difference it makes on how the temps feel when the sun is out like that. Sun was out yesterday but still breezy and I made it out for a ride to help with the cabin fever.

Life is like a bronc ride. You gotta hang on, ride it out, and Let er buck!!!!!

I hunted with my uncle in this area this year, he owns a ranch just outside of Vernal on the South slope of Diamond Mountain. Some of the most incredible Elk I have ever seen live on his property. I am hoping to draw out this year and be able to get one of my own. Kevin, I have also seen quite a few beautiful bucks in this area. Great place to watch wildlife, but still wicked cold in the winter! Congrats on curing cabin fever, I need to do that soon it has been warming up around here lately.

When you are sitting a top a horse, you are that much closer to God.

Bleccchhh. I haven't ridden in weeks. I was out at the barn on Saturday and the inside of the barn was -20. That's with the body heat of the stalled horses, which makes a significant difference. I didn't even want to think about going into the arena.

This needs to go away.

The South slope of Diamond Mountain is where we saw all the nice bucks after Thaanksgiving. I would give my left arm to live and work out there.

I wanted to ride so bad today! Unfortunately, it was between -10 and 5 all day...and with wind chill it was between -30 and -40 all day...warnings were out to not be outside for more than a few minutes at a time if possible...just wouldn't have been a fun ride, so I came straight home after work! On the bright side, that means I made it home with enough energy to get through my workout :)

A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.

Its been freezing here in the good ol' Northwoods of WI! Negative 30 the other morning! Yet I am the stupid girl at the stable that faithfully goes out every day to exercise her crazy green mare.

Why can't I be like the others and wait for warm weather? Haha
