Robins busy with Spring’s work.

Lefty blew a binding on Superstar during an epic May bump fest, necessitating an ignominious walk down the liftline.  Today they repaid their debt in North Central MA.

"Does this toupee make me look stupid?" 
Every now and then I see a deer with this shaggy growth between the antlers, but this dude is making a veritable fashion statement with his goldilocks.The bow season is quickly drawing to a close in Massachusetts.  I threw a camera out by the spot where the buck destroyed the little hemlock and lo and behold, I got a picture of the perpetrator.  Gorgeous rack — probably 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 year old deer.

Scouting the woods up by Mt. Watatic today.  Encountered this graffiti in the old snowmaking building.  Props to the “artist” for self-expression, but maybe some remedial spelling work is needed.
