the good part of spring

yes, we are in that time frame where everything is on, well, maybe not epic high mountain bike rides, but all else.
okay, the fly fishing is not at the top of its game, but nymphing should be okay for a long time. ask about at your favorite sports stores and fishing shops for more info, but i know the infatutuated ones are getting out.
biking has been great. tacky trails that are mostly cleared of snow. although pig farms could use a ton of clearing due to winter logging. if anyone is still reading this, i will post a potential unofficial gathering to help chuck brush, if we get one put together.

skiing is of course, still on. i did hike up the hill yesterday am, and found the top half nothing short of brutal. not quite re-frozen. hiking was slick and seemed like trail breaking with an unsupporting crust. and the skiing up high was difficult and dangerous. and with my dog who only understands going as fast as possible, under my feet, it was even tougher. usually i can just speed up, but with a crust layer, going fast was not my best option.

by the way, a very nice resort security guy drove by as i was preparing to leave the car, and mentioned the USFS has had a presence up there this spring and ARE writing tickets for dogs off leash. so at least have one ready. he said he could care less about the base area, what with no one there, but was just giving me a warning.

trail runners should be happy right now. cool days and dry trails.

but swimmers are still likely indoors, unless they are the super hardy type, more usually found on the coasts where they have nothing better to do.

okay, i am heading up the Bike Patrol, for the Whitefish Trail, and am actively looking for volunteers. please call me at 862 4281 or email at stilltelecm@yahoo.com

lastly, started up a website for my gardening business, if anyone has a need or knows someone with a need. www.millerstillers.com take a look.

and get out and play. later.
