We went for a drive on Sunday afternoon through the Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge.
Fisherman made a trail to put up their fish houses way out on Tamarac Lake. I think there were five house..waaaay out there.
Snowmobiles and ATV’s are not allowed on the refuge. Inside the refuge snowmobiles and vehicles are not permitted on the lake ice. All fish houses must be removed at the end of the day. I am sure these fellows pulled out a sled loaded with their portable fish houses..they made a wonky looking trail.
Near the refuge headquarters we saw some deer. Chance was patient..
If you have ever wondered why they are called whitetails..this is why.
This one was eating on that Balsam Tree and took off just as I snapped the photo.
This is what one of the roads looks like. We didn’t meet any cars on our drive through the refuge..several people passed us..we only drove about 25 mph..typical Sunday drivers.
It was nice to get out of the house..the weather was above zero..it looks like our weather will warm up this week. Good thing too as I have several appointments this week..meeting with some mucky mucks and the Dental Hygienist:)
