What a gift you’ve given to all of us with this article, Joe! To those that made it out, a beautifully written chronicle. For those whom will only ever read about it (until, perhaps next year?) — you captured the ineffable nature of an event like this. I’ll add “kick-ass writer” to the long list of the skill sets you bring to our community. So lucky to have you as such a close neighbor in the East Fork. Now having this knowledge, about your acumen for writing, I’ll be in trouble with my editors if I don’t encourage you to come contribute over at The Good Men Project!!
BTW… loved the trail cam snapshot… I lament I didn’t have the opportunity to share with you LCpl. Jake’s newest volunteer endeavor — Security (read: Squirrel) Patrol in the East Fork!
