Today was a beautiful quiet day.  Monty and I started out up at Cascade Lake for a quick loop, it was already snowing when we left home.  The only ones up there were two other dog walkers, each with 3 dogs.  On the home front I spent most of today just watching the birds outside. Notable was the Rusty-blackbird.  I also did a webinar about Invasive Plants.  I'm still fulfilling more classroom time for my Master Naturalist 2.
