Bitterly cold

When a winter storm hit Tuesday morning, mule deer came pouring down the migration trail from the mountains, crossing what has become a very famous migration bottleneck, Trapper's Point outside of Pinedale, Wyoming. Here's a group of deer traversing the bottleneck between two rivers and crossing U.S. Highway 191. It is -32 degrees this morning at the ranch - not fit for man nor beast. I'm looking forward to Saturday's predicted snowfall, so we'll have highs of nearly 30 above zero. Sounds wonderful. Sixty degrees warmer than currently.

That's a lovely image! Maybe you should submit it to a photo contest or something.
