New Years Eve in the Mountains 2009

Harvesting some fuel from a downed oak up on top.

Happy New Year's to all.

We have been here in the mountains for 5 days now and looking forward to Celebrating tonight our accomplishments this year.

I started this blog in July this year and today is 100 days of postings.

Made a decision to hold off on wall and roof till February as the weather next week will not be productive on top .

My wife got to see and walk on her Christmas present Tuesday morning after the snow had covered the floors.

Thanks to those who have followed our journey the last 6 months.

A couple doe's stand off with each other Tuesday morning.

Deer gotta eat to.

We only got about 2 inches on our site.

Our daughter loves this kind of weather.

This photo washed out as I was standing in a cloud.

I enjoy a cup of coffee while my wife checks out the views.

I stand on the upper floor looking to the West.

What to expect next winter except I'll be standing the house by then !

I point at Barry driving around in the snow on his 4 wheeler coming up the driveway.

Always good to see your bud.

I play with my new "baby nikon" up on the pad

Was good to come back and not be bossing a crew this trip.

The lovely Mrs Denziel stands in the clouds as they role over the rockslide and up our mountain.

and that's the way it is .


Happy New Year's


no need for a weather report , it's cold and been snowing.

  1. Congratulations on 100 posts. I have been following you on almost all of those. Really enjoy the joy you and your family seem to have with your upcoming move to the mountains. I have lived at 9100 feet high in the colorado rockies for almost 25 years. I am a native Texan and because of your blog site might be coming down to look at the southern rockies to retire in myself. I want to be in a place where everyone leaves you alone mostly. Sounds like you have found the spot! Happy New Year, and all the best, always!

  2. Happy New Year to you and your family!

    New house is really taking shape.

    Look forward to watching the continuing saga.

  3. I love looking at the pictures of your lovely family and your West Texas hideaway. You all look so happy and rightly so.

    My best wishes for you and yours in this coming new year.

  4. Thanks for the update and happy new year to you and your family!

  5. Thanks MsBelinda
    Happy New Year to you and yours!

    Happy New Year to you and yours also!

    Pushed the framing and roof up to Feb.

    Need to take care of some small stuff before I bring the crew back.

    cheers !
