Warm days around The 100 Acre Wood Lodge this February. Down to about 8 inches of snow. We still have a lot of elk around. I had a close encounter with one the other day. A cow elk came after me with her hooves trying to impale my back. She was not looking very good, the winter was taking its tool on her. She eventually got down and could not get up, the Fish & Wildlife Service came and put her down. Now we are feeding her calf, hope he makes it. On a better note it was a beautiful sunny day today. February thaw, water running everywhere, birds about. We are going to get away for about 9 days starting on the 18th to Mexico. We will have lodge sitters to accommodate anyone still wanting to come to The Wood. We had a great season last year. We will do a little photo recap then till now.
Finally back to what’s new at 100 Acre Wood Lodge
We have made it thru another year here at the 100 Acre Wood..
All of the usual wildlife has been seen as winter approaches, deer, bear, elk, eagles & of course the wolves..... we just heard them howling last night. The Steelhead fishing has been great with the warmer temps. We’ve had actual snow . The weather has been great for hiking! Lost Trail Ski Area will open on Thursday, Dec. 6th....the beginning of a great ski season.. The mountains are supposed to have a ton of snow this winter. We are the closest lodging to Lost Trail Powder Mountain on the Idaho side...Be sure and check us out!! Save on gas and be close ton the mountain!!!
There are many other activities if you are not a skier, Try hiking, snowmobiling, snow shoeing or wildlife viewing. There are many hot springs to visit in the area also!!
The lodge will be opened all winter...enjoy a hot breakfast (or cold depending on your schedule!) which is included in the price of the room...All rooms have been upgraded this past year w/new pillow top beds, new linens, bedspreads etc .etc....Warm & cozy!! Our outside hot tub is up and running and fireplaces a blazing!!..Be sure and call 100 Acre Wood Lodge before settling for 2nd best...We are known as the best lodge in the area...
Snakes, Bikes & Bucks at The Wood
Things are starting to pick up at 100 Acre Wood Lodge. So I am not as fast at this as I would like. We had two groups of bikers, one who have been coming to stay with us on their trips every year for the past 10 years. The other for the first time, but we are sure it won’t be their last! Great looking bikes & trike. I call this particular trike a Mule, because when you cross a donkey with a horse you get a mule. So when you cross a sports car with a motorcycle you get a Mustang Trike. The best of both worlds. They came from Wyoming & Idaho .While they were having dinner we saw a Whitetail Buck by the pond. I went outside to take a photo, then he started running toward me. I had cracked corn in a container for the ducks & geese & he wanted some. I had been feeding a doe a few months ago, but I guess she was a buck. This was a treat for the guests to see him so close. Later out the front doors of the lodge we saw a Rattle snake!! Check out the photo. (Too bad it wasn’t real.) We had American Avocets land at the lake for a couple of days. Beautiful birds. Another jeep tour into the Salmon River Corridor. We saw baby elk, deer & sheep. Our buddy, a four point buck came back again. Until next time ....Don’t forget to check out the photo gallery.Be sure to click on the bottom left or right of the photo below to go to next photo or back a photo. 6/ 25/12
