Yellowstone River Overwhelms Norm's Island
"Unless you're wearing hip waders, getting completely around the island is most likely out of the question, because irrigation boots will not even get you to the middle of some of these water pools that block the trail. And let's not forget the swarming, take-no-prisoner mosquitoes who are looking to eat you alive as you stand there."
"From what I hear in the forecast, the waters are just going to get deeper for the next few days. I'd stay clear of the island for awhile. Although the off-island outside trail is a pretty nice place to walk the dogs."
I promise DOG pictures again soon. I will try now to get my weblog back to pictures of dogs instead of being a report on the conditions at Norm Schoenthal Island.
I had thought that we were through with tick season, but Nina Blanca picked a bunch today. She likes to scurry through the brush on the side of the trail. Chocolate, who stays by my side most of the time, does not seem to have any.
