Denali Backcountry Adventure III
This post is photos taken along the 97 mile dive into the park. Not great pics, but pics. I needed 200mm more zoom and a seat on top of the bus to get great pics.
Still enjoying not working.
There is a sheep in the pic below. I do need more than 300mm on this drive.
Fireweed is blooming and that means Fall is on the way.
Today was a stay home and do little day for me. I spoke with my oldest brother for 1.5 hours about planes, power plants, and engineering things. He does miss work but wishes he had retired earlier. He retired at age 67. I am glad I left the work force at age 52, I do miss some things also, but love sleeping in and not having to meet any deadline.
Out of focus pic but I wanted to show Sow bear had a cub with her.
A UPS truck came to our house and brought my Squrrelanator I had ordered from ACME. It is a live trap that was suggested to me for my animal problem. Even the UPS guy said his home area was overrun with those cute furry guys this year. I have no idea why they reproduced so much this year. There must be at least 50 living in my yard and running across my roof early in the morning.
Caribou loosing old fur and growing new.
Really, guys, I swear I was abducted and they did experiments on me and implanted this collar.
Caribou on the hillside.
I watched two movies on internet TV and picked out these pics from the SD chip to use in this post. Another post will be required to finish the drive, I took more pics than I thought.
Grizzly Bear and cub eating blue berries. All the bears and there was a lot of them were eating berries.
