It's nice to see your ducks have lined up Bill.  I'm guessing you guys are having a gas.

There is no nicer way to travel than to have a guide that knows the area.  Way to travel Elliot !!!

Nice images, but it does not look like Spring has cut loose there either?

You are correct. The trees are starting to bud out! Flowers are just starting to sprout

Yes, loaded down by a beer belly and a pocket full of pain killers for 2 of the 3 Violators. Tom came and left with a smile, perhaps a laugh at two 'druggies'.

That is one gnarley-looking eagle!  He reminds me of Nixon holding up his arms in a victory salute.
