Snow Changes

21 Mar

Bongo in the snowWe got more snow overnight and then the sun came out in the afternoon. Time for more adventures!

The sun made the snow start melting so there were all kinds of puddles and streams on my trails. I walked through the middle of every puddle. It was great fun.

I found some kind of strange spiny creature hibernating in the snow. I’ve never seen this creature before. I hope it’s still there when the snow melts. I want to see what the rest of it looks like.


Spiny Snow Creature

My pond didn’t have any water in it a couple days ago. Now it’s a true mud puddle. It even has red water. I’d better get my Detective Dog hat on and find out where this water is coming from.

Hey, where did this water come from? It’s running down the rock.

We even found a virgin trail and got to put the first footprints in the snow.

Bongo on virgin snow

Hey person, I bet tomorrow we’ll be able to find some really good virgin mud.

    You are SO lucky to have snow! BTW, I wasn’t getting email notifications for your blog, so I unfollowed and refollowed so they’d start up again. woo woo woo!

      Rumpy, the snow is great. I’ve been having the same problems with your blog. I usually go to “Read Blogs” on WordPress and yours stopped coming through so I added email notifications and that’s working. My person is way behind on reading everyone’s blogs right now though since she went out of town for classes last week – and now she has to do homework for those classes and get her taxes done before she can get caught up.

    I didn’t think the scenery could get any better in Sedona but the snow adds just the right touch. Was it cold on your feet Bongo?

    • Bongo

      March 21, 2012 at 10:29 pm

      Lindy, I have so much fun in the snow that I don’t even think about whether my feet are cold.

    Look at that snow! It was 70something here today.

    • Bongo

      March 21, 2012 at 10:31 pm

      Jen, our snow is gone now and it was 70 something here today too. Hard to believe we went from warm, to a bunch of snow, back to warm so quickly.

    Bongo, that’s great looking over there. It must feel great to have the honor to put the first foodprints in the snow. Enjoy for as long as it takes 😀

      Angels Whisper, it’s always fun to put footprints into snow that nobody’s walked on, but my favorite is totally messing up the snow in my yard. I drag my Frisbee around and put circles in the snow.

    “Virgin Mud”?!!! You definitely will! This is probably the best time of year, when you get to see the changes of seasons in process. Enjoy Bongo!

      Marina, I found my mud. Squish, squish.

    Woo woo! I love to put the first footprints in the snow, too!!! but never done on the virgin mud! It sounds pretty fun as well as in the snow! The spiny creature seems to be a bit dangerous….please be careful to get close, Bongo! 🙂

    • Bongo

      March 22, 2012 at 10:26 am

      Kevin, I was kind of concerned that the spiny creature might wake up when I was checking it out.

    That spiky thing looks scary!!!

    Stop on by for a visit

    • Bongo

      March 22, 2012 at 12:35 pm

      Kari, I don’t think I’d want to meet that spiky thing if it was awake.

    More snow, you are really getting lucky this spring and on top of all that snow your puddle is back. I love the pictures of you hunting down where the water is coming from, down the beautiful red rock. That prickly thing looks really mean no sure we would like to find that again!!

    • Bongo

      March 22, 2012 at 12:33 pm

      Lexie and Mica, I was really glad that prickly thing seemed to be sleeping. I wouldn’t want it coming after me.

    What great pics! I love that spiny cactus showing through the snow!

    • Bongo

      March 22, 2012 at 12:40 pm

      Thanks Bassetmomma. I’ve never seen a spiny cactus look quite like that before.

    Hey Bongo, Jet here. What did your detecting skills determine about the spiny thing? What a great day on the trails!

    • Bongo

      March 22, 2012 at 8:29 pm

      Hey Jet, the snow is gone now and that spiny thing is nowhere to be found. I’m not sure where it went off to.

        hmmm… very in-ter-est-ing… stay on it Bongo!

    Being the first to put footprints on the trail sounds like fun!

    • Bongo

      Brown Dawgs, fresh snow is the best!

    What a fun day!! All that melting snow looks like so much fun to traipse through 🙂

      Deanna, it was tons of fun – having snow, mud, and water all at the same time.

    You’re lucky Bongo! Snow – and being the first one on the trail is fun! My mom could let me out on an untouched field after the snow had fallen. And in a matter of a few minutes I had run all over the field making prints all over the place! 😀

    • Bongo

      March 26, 2012 at 1:51 pm

      Fenris, I always do that with the snow in my back yard. Actually, I love to drag my Frisbee around in the snow. I usually end up with muddy circles all around the yard.
