On my walk today I ran into numerous families with young gosling. I noticed that the numbers of goslings is down from previous years which may be a result of our longer and colder Winter and Spring.

However, the Columbia ground squirrels were out in abundance.

Balsam root certainly adds a touch of colour to the landscape at this time of year.

Perry Creek Falls, a fifteen minute drive from Wycliffe Regional Park, are worth seeing during run off. However, care is needed as the path is narrow in places and the rocks can be wet and slippery from the spray.

Happy Canada Day!!

What a great time to reflect on what a great country Canada is, whether we live on the East, North, or West Coast, or somewhere in between.

This equally memorable hike was to Bear Lake near Cranbrook. This shot was taken looking East from the ridge above the lake down on Ruault Lake towards Summer Lake.

This pelican was spotted on July 7 after supper on Elizabeth Lake. This is the first I have ever seen in this area.

At the same time this western painted turtle was busy laying eggs near the shore by the highway.
