Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree…

‘Tis the season … and the weather is right.  Go to the BLM, get a tag, then off to the woods.

Follow the leader ...
Follow the leader …

Up the mountain … meet with other hardy souls … scout out the trees … select and cut.

Surrounded by the beauty of Idaho ...
Surrounded by the beauty of Idaho …

Then, it’s time for a little chili and cornbread.  Hoo boy – it’s cold … but …

Chili's on the menu ...
Chili’s on the menu …
... and cornbread too!
… and cornbread too!
What a view for lunch!
What a view for lunch!

After all the work, those with lockers are heading up to the top!  Air down to 2-5 psi, go slow, stay off the ice, and if the wheels start to spin – well, it’s too late then.

Line 'em up, head 'em out ...
Line ’em up, head ’em out …
Indescribable ...
Indescribable …
... like looking down on Whoville.
… like looking down on Whoville.

Gotta give thanks to the Lord for Christmas.  We’ve been set free, indeed!

Alas, time to head back down ...
Alas, time to head back down …

… and time to celebrate with thanksgiving – for sure!
