A frigid week

We certainly have been having our share of winter weather, 13 below, and then 70 mile an hour winds, more snow, but today I'm off and the weather has improved so I was able to get some things done outside, shovel the deck, hated to since there were little deer prints there in the snow. Wish I had been home to see which deer climbed the stairs to the deck. Warm enough for me to move the bird baths closer to the house so I can crack the ice and put water out for the wildlife without hiking thru the snow.

While I was out, a small herd of elk came thru the lower meadow, they are such elegant animals, very graceful when they walk even tho they are huge animals, always seem to follow one after the other in a line, don't know why, but they are very shy and run at the slightest noise, I was able to climb a small hill looking down on them, but not a closeup with my digital, wishing for a zoom lens, anyway, if you look closely, you can see them walking in a line up a hill.
