Many thanks Sagasu for the prompt visit to help verify and ease the wintry discovery of WP2! In our search a few days before, we were so close, yet so far.....kinda all over, but WP2 was sitting well within the GZ-circle, just as we'd expect for a Sagasu hide; but well-buried in the snow, outside our excavation areas.
As we sought a high and dry route to WP3, we became distracted by a large grouping of herons; at first taking flight into the air, and then back down again onto a frozen pond. As we scooted across a small stream on a downed tree, we saw them once again take flight, with most flying up into a massive rookery! We were in awe, having never seen anything like this before. We just had to take a quick look and pictures, and then looked around and got the feeling we'd left Conservancy property. So we quickly back-tracked and headed to WP3, which we found after a bit of a search in a very nice and unexpected hide.
And then it was on to the final, where we were verbally assaulted en route by red-wing blackbirds, and made the find on our favorite sort of hide and container. With several ducks and geese watching nearby, it took a swift but non-destructive (honest!) kick of a boot to free the container, where we found everything to be in great shape. We retrieved the rare Jeep, but left nothing in its place as all we had was....another jeep ......we are planning to find a new home for them both out west.
Thanks again for another classic Sagasu multi in the wild! An excellent course in a beautiful area that truly must transform itself into a very different challenge and reward through the passage of the Seasons. And thanks for sharing these special areas of the Conservancy! This one is certainly a Favorite!
