Next month its back to Timber Cruising in the Black Hills...

I am slowly easing myself off of malted milk eggs and Mr. Foresterman's excellent homemade chocolate  chip ice cream so I can waddle in the woods productively next month. Wish us luck.

Speaking of waddling, I found some old Timber Cruising photos to share ~

A poky old porcupine, 

    a precarious fern,

a perky Pine Marten,

a perched Ponderosa Pine stand,

a pesky Black Hills Ground Squirrel,

 a perfect parking opportunity,

a very pretty Aster,

a proficient Bumble Bee,

 a  poisonous mushroom?

a prominent mother tree,

a playful Dexterdog,

a phenomenal view,

a photogenic log,

a protective, practical no-dig log fence,

a peaceful moonrise,

a pensive pair of deer,

two plump wood chucks,

a lovely purple Lupine,

a poetic Fire Tower,

a long line of precipitous cliffs (i was up there?!)

And a very pleasant sunset!

Thank you for being so patient and polite by viewing these personal cruising photos!

Stay tuned until next week, where I'll share my secret to producing Popeye arms in the woods...!


 Its a  FridayTrifecta!


  1. What beautiful scenes, the pine martens are never seen must have an awesome lens on your camera to capture them. Loved the tour.

  2. beautiful pictures, I have to say my favourite is the fence, I have wanted a fence like that for years,stunning!

  3. Amazing I want to visit the Black Hills even more

  4. i loved the happy tree stump!!! all of your photos are phenomenal! i'd be looking forward to returning to the black hills. who watches your horses and cats while you're gone?

  5. Amazing pics! It's safe to guess you're not in Philly, right??? Enjoy:@)

  6. Cool photos. I like the pine marten- whatever the heck that is and I also like Dexter- thankfully I know what he is. lol Have a great weekend!

  9. Dear Feral good luck back at work. I love the photos they are beautiful. Popeye arms eh? (Canadian) that is what I have too. Yeah. B

  10. What great pics. I can't believe what you have caught through your lens. I've never seen a porcupine in the wild, nor the Pine Marten. I think I'd prefer to see the latter!
    Love the smiling log!

  11. I enjoyed your photos! I've never seen a porcupine before, so neat that you came across one in the woods!

  12. Beautiful, much better than the south end of a sheep that I have been staring at for the last few weeks. I can't wait to see what comes up next!

  13. A plethora of perfectly lovely photographs!

  14. That's the first time I've ever seen a Marten. Very cool!

  15. Your photos are beautiful! Thank you for sharing!

  16. Loved the pics! I've never heard of pine martens. They're kinda cute. Lupines are great...have you ever read the children's book Miss Rumphius? You must read it, then go spread some lupine seeds.

  17. Where's the partridge in a pear tree?!? Wonderful shots. We've been seeing that type of a squirrel here which many of the native residents haven't seen before.
