Waiting for Snow, a New Family Member, and 8 Month Kaya

The river has icebergs floating down it and the north side of the yurt stays frosty all day. We have the cold, but now we are just waiting for some precipitation. Come on snow!

Here we are getting the dogs ready for winter pulling.

Notice Ranger hanging a foot behind Georgie so his line is slack and she is pulling everything. He is a goofy dog but he is definitely not dumb. We are hoping that his will be the year we can get a dog sled and get another Alaskan merit badge.
The Yurt has gotten a bit more crowded with the addition of a hermit crab to the family. Here is Leo putting Nicey's home together.

Kaya is eight months old now and is very close to crawling.

She was introduced to Cheerios recently and couldn't be happier. Her and one particular Cheerio have become life long friends.

Sunny to snowy

We had a wonderfully sunny fall with a lot of time spent out on our deck.

We are still spending time on the deck but the weather has turned and we are welcoming in the snow. Here is Leo trying to net it.

Our wildflowers always seem to be in bloom just as the snow hits.

First snow fall on the yurt. Nothing really stuck at our elevation.

But, it did up in the mountains.

You can tell Leo is excited. Kaya is a little unsure, and Georgie doesn't care.
