Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!! | High Sierra Topix  

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!

May you and your family all have a wonderful holiday season, and be safe out on
the roads!

Wishing for those of you who are going through hard times, either with sickness
or work related issues, that you get to find some renewed strength, persevere, and hope
during this time that you will spend with your family or loved ones.

Thank you for everything that each of you do to make HST such a special community
year round!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

Also, thank you all for sharing information, pictures, reports, opinions and everything else. I really enjoy being part of this community and hope that I contribute a little to it myself.

Same to everyone here.

We're just back from a cruise down the Rhine...with no turkey in the fridge.

Maybe we'll do freeze dried!

Happy thanksgiving mav, and all in hst land. I am nursing the flu, so I am staying away from the family get together. My girlfriend is visiting family back east so I am actually looking forward to lots of napping in a quiet house.

I wish you all the best, and happy holidays!

Big blue skies with whispy clouds, no snow yet - cold. The Western Grey squirrels are in constant motion, using the expansive Ponderosa Pine branches as their own arborial freeway. A bushy one pauses on a branch stump high above, now constantly twitching in cadence with its own piercing cry...a warning or an invitation? - hard to tell...this goes on for 5 minutes.

A murder of Clark's have descended, (or whatever you call a herd of Nutcrackers), systematically decimating the Ponderosa's cones - an ariel demolition factory. The Ravens remain here in town, still not cold enough to head down to Bishop...The Cow birds have left, thankfully. The occasional Steller Jay comes around but most are surprisingly mute as compared to summer visits.
Saw a raccoon last night, working hard to unlock a latched trash bin...The bears are still active too, searching for possible winter dens, as significant snow is expected this weekend.
Happy Thanksgiving from Mammoth!

squirrel chirps are always warnings. Too bad you're in city limits; they are tasty.

Happy Thanksgiving!
