Woke up with a little snow, just a light dusting but it was nice.

Thanksgiving

We had a rare day yesterday where we were both off together. We worked for the other couple on Thanksgiving day and they worked for us yesterday. Took a motorcycle ride to Coldspring Texas and then out to the National Forest. It was a beautiful day and after coming home we had our Thanksgiving meal that night. Lots to be thankful for!

Pileated Woodpecker

I have been hearing these since we arrived, but never got a very good shot because they are usually very high in the trees. Well this morning I heard one and was determined to get some decent pictures. This one was about 60 ft up. The Pileated Woodpecker is the largest woodpecker in North America unless you happen upon a very rare Ivory Billed. Taken with a Tamron 70-300mm lense.

Thankful

As the holidays approach I think back on the last 5 months of us arriving in the Piney Woods of East Texas. We have enjoyed some great food, nice sunsets and moonlit nights, gambling at Naskila, massages under the pines, nature, beautiful scenery, and logging trucks almost as numerous as pickups. Endured a hurricane, flooding, and a love bug infestation. Its been a great time and I’m thankful for it all! (well maybe not the love bugs)
