Seems as winter has been dragging on forever here in WNY, I hit my usual patch of woods where we had 4 or 5 inches of snow. Figure this has to be the last snow trip of the year. Goal today was just do a little hike(part of the same portion I did last week so I didn't take any pictures of that), drop a few smaller trees with the axe for practice and then just enjoy the day out in the woods.
I downloaded a free app for my iphone that I figure might interest some people, it is called "MapMyRun", I figure I would test it out on my day hikes just for kicks to see if it would work with crappy cell reception out in the woods.
I only used it on the way back out of the woods because I wasn't sure if it would track and let me take pictures as well, but it seems to stay running when you minimize it to take a picture.
Stream was almost frozen over
My little semi-perm camp I setup a while back, looks cool to see it before all the snow gets tramped down
I'm not the most confident with an axe yet when dropping a tree so I found two dead standing trees to practice cutting down, pretty small diameter but they are a little more forgiving(and way more wood than I needed for the day trip).
