Sunrise in November

Sunrise this time of year is so beautiful.  I love seeing what is in store every morning as I watch the sun come up over the mountains.

Weather continues to be a bit lower in temperature.  A storm came through on Saturday bringing heavy winds and some snow.  The unsettled weather pattern brought quite a few cloudy days.

It has been as low as twelve degrees and as high as fifty since my last post.  So far in Ennis we have experienced small amounts of snow.

Opening Day - Hunting Season 2013

©2013 Ken W. Hall

As if challenging all odds on opening morning of big game hunting season 2013, a fine mule deer buck stands just outside the back yard.  Thoroughly he sniffs car from Idaho visiting a neighbor…oblivious to the challenges of his kind for the next several weeks. Maybe the lesson is "Do what your instincts sing for and by doing so you are safe from harm". 

I am glad the buck called me to the window so we could talk. I had been yearning for an elder to advise and inspire me!

 Temperatures remain below average for this time of year. The mornings are in the twenties and afternoons in the forties to low fifties.

Everyone braced for a storm on Monday that was expected to bring several inches of snow.  We endured high winds and cold but escaped the moisture this time round.

Today the sun is shining.  It is thirty-six degrees and the wind is just beginning to blow.  I love fall in the Madison Valley.
