Sitting on the deck outside the lodge to use their wifi, finches, sparrows of all types, jays, and many others are singing their hearts out. Snowshoe rabbits with just a bit of white still on the bottoms of their feet are playing nearby. The wood smoke from their boiler fills the air with the sharp smell of burnt wood. A fisherman staying here told me that the grouse are drumming but haven't heard them yet.
Here's a few of the photos from yesterday from our travels and play.
