After reading some posts by all you folks up in the cold, snowy, north country I thought I would put up some pics of how winter is here.

Winter is our best hiking season. No snow, but very cold mornings (it's 6 degrees on my back porch right now). It will warm up to the high 40's or low 50's this afternoon. But if we dress for it, it's great hiking weather. No bugs, no snakes, no heat, and the hunters are gone. There is so much goat food out there that the goats get their whole day's feed just by going for a hike. I do give them a little hay at night, tho, just to keep them warm.

There is a place here where you can park an RV or rent a cabin that has pens for horses or goats. If anybody would like to get out of the snow for a vacation with (or without) goats let me know.

Here are a few pics of winter hikes.

Down here in Texas we are hoping for at least a little white. Don't hate me for going surf fishing at the beach over Thanksgiving holiday. We did make a campfire on the beach to help dry quickly. I waded out and castes my lines in the surf. The 65 degrees and North winds were chilling. Didn't catch much but, the 1/2 cord of fire wood lasted 10 hours and the cooler went empty by 9 pm.
It did get below 60 after the sun went down, we had to take our bathing suites off and put our jeans on.
