Before sunrise on a stormy Fall morning a bull moose crosses the Snake River at Oxbow Bend in Grand Teton National Park while two Trumpeter Swans languish in the morning's quiet time.
Cool and cloudy at North Cascades National Park today. Two nights ago I was returning from Bellingham and had just turned onto the short, narrow lane that leads to my trailer when a mountain lion crossed the path in front of me. Last night I heard a huge crash of trees and brush in the forest close by...My hairs were standing up all day yesterday, especially when hearing some sort of animal prowling around. My trailer is backed up to thick forest and tall trees. Does he live there or is he just visiting - that is the question. Tomorrow I take a boat ride up Ross Lake to Hozeman for a weekend camping trip and a Canadian holiday. Looking forward to this trip and the photo ops.
