Ice on Ruby this morning, wipers frozen to the windshield, but Bar made it alright to work. Only a few icy patches in the highway before she got there.

Forecast snow didn’t materialize in our portion of Neely’s Canyon. Consumes about eighteen acres and all densely treed so hard to tell about elsewhere. Twenty-nine degrees at Camp Mabry at 8 a.m., probably cooler in the canyon.

Prince of the Canyon

A stud muffin of Neely’s Canyon’s white-tailed deer, come to see about our feeding of carrots and peanuts to his herd. He grew the big, trophy horns thanks to the ‘no  hunting’ law in the Austin city neighborhood which overlooks the city- and county-managed Balcones Canyonlands Preserve.
