Poco is in Squirrel heaven ! This afternoon during a snow shower, the kind that are mostly beautiful and pleasant, because they disappear so quickly, Poco treed a pine squirrel in a ponderosa pine.
Looking over his shoulder, Poco seems to be saying,” common’ Dad ! He’s too high up for me !”
Just to the left of the tree that Poco is rearing up on, is a large cedar tree. Note that it is mostly green, with little snow showing on it.
Here is another look at that same tree about five minutes before, as Poco and I were checking campsites.
Rio Grande National Forest, Conejos District, Aspen Glade Campground. 8500 feet of elevation in the Rocky Mountain’s Front Range, beside the Conejos River.
