Bit Late But It Still Counts!

Posted by ChrisJones , 25 January 2017 - - - - - - · 219 views

I thought I'd try and get a New Year's greeting in, while what little internet I have is working! The adverse weather is making connection spotty at best, and off at worst! It's a little chilly to say the least.
 
So here goes...
 
Happy New Year from the mountains. I wish you all a happy and prosperous New Year.

Trespassers

Posted by ChrisJones , in Birds 23 August 2016 - - - - - - · 383 views

Yesterday afternoon, before the rain came, I was alerted to an intruder by the dog. These b*****ds were trespassing on my land and had completely ignored the posted signs.

Reservoir

Posted by ChrisJones , in Fishing 22 August 2016 - - - - - - · 359 views

The weather was beautiful, yesterday afternoon. Mid sixties Fahrenheit and the sun was shining. I recently picked up some ultra-light action, fishing gear, and I wanted to try it out so I headed out to the reservoir.
 
It's an ugly place, wouldn't you agree?

Ospreys

Posted by ChrisJones , in Birds 15 August 2016 - - - - - - · 364 views

Had an early start this morning... up at first light to walk the dog and check up on the local wildlife.
 
The last few months we've had a pair of Ospreys nesting on top of the pylon, at the local sub-station. They don't like people too close so we've always kept a respectful distance. Generally once you hear them call you're too close, and the femal...

Evening On The Water

Posted by ChrisJones , in Fishing 10 August 2016 - - - - - - · 433 views

10 miles from me is the beautiful town of Pine Valley. A few days a week I like to get out and fish their reservoir for a couple of hours.
 
Tonight was no different although the only thing biting was the mosquitoes!

Local Wildlife

Posted by ChrisJones , in Trail Cam Updates 09 August 2016 - - - - - - · 360 views

Living in the mountains is very enjoyable. It's extremely peaceful but not exactly quiet. There's more deer than people in this part of the world and the road leading into the city is known as 'Venison Alley.'
 
Earlier this year I installed a trail cam, on my property. On my way out to work, one weekend, I saw a bobcat among the trees. I decided th...

And So We Begin...

Posted by ChrisJones , 09 August 2016 - - - - - - · 346 views

Greetings and salutations.
 
Some of you may be aware that I recently moved into the back of beyond. I moved from England, in 2008, and I now live in mountains of southern Utah, USA. I live in a town with around 600 people in it. There are no shops here. No post office. Not even a petrol station. The nearest is about 10 miles away. The nearest city i...
