About Me

We are known as PaWingers or just The Wingers by our Geocaching friends. When we found our first cache we had to come up with a name to log the find. We came up with this name simply because of residing in Pa. and because one of our many passions is cruising this beautiful country on our Honda Goldwing. Aside from geocaching we are passionate about most anything outdoors including hiking, kayaking, snowmobiling and biking. We are blessed beyond words with a wonderful son and daughter in law. We're also blessed with some terriffic family and friends. We consider ourselves very fortunate due to the fact that after being married over 40 years we still enjoy these things together.

Winslow Wildlife

We spent the afternoon wandering around Winslow Hill in hopes of getting some good images of wildlife.  We spotted some nice big bulls but it was difficult to get close enough for some good pictures.  The snow was especially treacherous yet and we didn't want to cause the animals to have to run and risk hurting them.  These icy conditions are very hard on wildlife.  We watched a flock of turkey as they tried to get down thru the crust in search of food.  Once again, we kept our distance to not panic them.  We love to get good pictures but won't put the animals at risk for a picture.  The deer we saw were making every effort to move as little as necessary.  Hopefully the icy crust will soften so the critters can move more easily.

Beautiful images, Tom. I like the detail and colors and the composition is right on. As much as I am tired of winter, these still make me want to be there and see the elk in the snow.
