Us folks in Wyoming have been dealing with some cold temperatures lately. Currently at Teton Fly Fishing world headquarters this morning it’s -10. That’s nothing compared to other places around the state. Canyon Village in Yellowstone reported -36 the other day. Below zero makes outdoor activities tough, if not impossible. That said, I do know some folks who have been out Elk hunting; these are tough men, not to be messed with.
I recently spent some time at our cabin in Dubois. Every year about this time we get the water shut off, ensuring pipes don’t freeze during the times we’re not there. We still get up there quite a bit. Winter is a great time to ski on Togwotee Pass or hike the badlands, and also can be pretty fishy, with the Wind River taking top honors.
Lately I’ve been determined to get some art pieces finished. Watercolors with ink and trout painted in oils consumer my winter hours. Yesterday I came near completing a linoleum-cut for print making (see pic below). I’m hoping to print a proof today to see how it looks. We’ll see… Hope everyone’s staying warm and having fun gearing up for the holidays.
