#237: Christmas Week Rhino Adventures in Bishop’s Buttermilks

Christmas week for the McCoys couldn’t have been better.

We spent most of the week outside with friends and family, enjoying the sights and enjoying the company.

We went on a few Rhino trips around the backyard and the Buttermilks. At this time last year, you couldn’t make it into the Buttermilks. This time, it was 70-degrees up there for much of the week.

The deer are loving the weather and so are the climbers at the Buttermilk climbing area. We got a lot of cool shots of them which we’ll post in a few days. We also saw a few different sets of golden eagles which we’ll also post in the next week.

One place that resembles winter is along the creeks. We made some great pictures of frozen water along some of the creek crossings. The days are warm but the nights must still be pretty cold.

The lack of snow doesn’t help skiing, but there’s a lot of fun to be had around Bishop and Mammoth right now. Stay tuned for much more from the last few weeks.

Hello Patricia, thanks for checking out the pictures. Winter is on its way. We’ve seen it do this at least four times in the past.

A small Hello of France,

I like much the photographs of frozen water which is formed in suspension above of the river. Strange phenomenon. The water is frozen in its race.Very beautiful.

It is true that the mountains at the back are not snow. No luck for the skiers and skiing resort, but the winter is not finish.

“The nature is really beautiful!!!!!!!”
