I had a few #wildlifeencounters
with different animals. First I was watching a ground squirrel from the camper roof and I got so excited I fell off. (the squirrel is standing up to the right of the big red leaf). When mama came down to get me, she found me jumping straight up and pouncing on all four feet, but I didn’t catch him.
Photo 2. I saw this #deer
a few times. We watched each other for a bit, then I saw some ground squirrels that were more interesting. Deer smells don’t get me excited.
Photo 3. This is where I spent time in the bushes close to camp. I practiced climbing the tree in case I needed to use it. “Early one morning Bodhi was at the end of his leash in the bushes below this tree -I was at the other end by the picnic table. A #coyote
came to within 20 m and didn’t notice him until he got this close. Yikes! I was keeping him close in the evening starting at dusk, but now he will be very close in the am too. Many coyotes can be heard yipping in the evening. There was only one walk that he probably smelled him and had to stop and look around more than usual.” .
Photo 4. I was sitting on mamas lap in front of the fire one evening when I sensed something in the bushes. I looked 5m towards the bushes not far from a big ponderosa pine tree, got scared and growled. My body started to shake and tremble. Mama got worried, grabbed a few things and took me inside. I instantly went to the window to watch the action.
“I went back out to grab a few things and found a #raccoon
climbing up the big ponderosa tree.
You never know what kind of wild animal you’ll meet out here in the #canadianwilderness
