The waterfalls are all still running in Yosemite because they had a fair amount of snow at the higher elevations, but here down at the cottage and 3000ft the little snow we had is long gone. And the usual rain has not arrived! This is the first time ever that our big pond is empty in winter.
But the deer come by looking for a drink and some nice green grass. Quite a few of them visit most days and you can photograph them right from your deck while having morning coffee or evening cocktails.
