The closest stop sign is over a mile away and the first traffic light is 5+ miles down the road. A visit to the grocery store is almost 30 miles round trip. It's quiet here; just the sound of toads and coyotes at night. It seems very still, but when you look close there's always something happening. Read on about a few things we've noticed over the past few years.

Pine cones

We have a large pine tree in front of our home.  The tree is healthy and is loaded with pine cones.  I bet there must be hundreds of cones on this tree.   Here's the funny thing...the tree has zero cones below it.  It must drop cones at one time or another but I never-ever find them.  Could it be a ground squirrel scurrying off with this booty? 
I'd like to find out, this is quite puzzling.
