Road Trip

I need to make a blogging date so I take time to post in my hectic days. The 16th Emily and I took the hogs to Delta (100 miles away) to be butchered. No one, young or old, really listens to my suggestions around here. All they hear is 'I told you so' after it's all said and done. This was one of those cases. After an hour and 20 minutes of wrestling screaming hogs (it got downright scary a couple of times) we did it my way and had them loaded in ten minutes. Glad to see these two go. They were skittish and just not a lot of fun. That photo is very deceiving as they really aren't letting her pet them. They were just checking for food. 

 They unloaded very easily.

This is the Tanana River on the way home.

This is the same river on the other side of the road. That's the pipeline spanning across.

It was a beautiful, but long drive as the roads were fairly ice and the wind was gusting 45 mph. Glad to have that done for another year.

Beautiful sky, and pigs, maybe far better in bacon, ham, and in the freezer.

So interesting to see the pipeline. How do you all feel about it?

Why was the river flowing on one side of the bridge and frozen on the other?
