October through December, 2010

October 26 brought our first significant snowfall. The dedicated raptor census takers (see lower left of this Oct 29 photo from the Bridger Ridge Cam) packed their skis up the 2,200 vertical feet from the end of the road to the ridge crest, where they spend 8 hours every day of September and October collecting data on raptor migration. At least getting down will be easier now! Meanwhile, recreational skiers (on the trail along the ridge) hiked out to take some runs down Bradley Meadows. (Note: Arthur says at this time of year they are probably going to Hidden Gully.)
