Fort Nelson to Muncho Lake

Sunday June 17th 2012

We spent Saturday night in an IGA store parking lot.  Found internet access at the visitor center  caught up on our email. 


IGA parking lot Fort Nelson

It was a wildlife frenzy day, 11 black bear one small moose and a couple of stone sheep.  One of the black bear ran right in front of us, that got our blood pumping.  Some of the bear were pretty good size and a few cubs.  The moose didn’t know enough to get out of the road, he was not sure what direction to go, he ended up in the river.  The stone sheep and her baby were grazing on the grass in a pullout.  What a day.

This little fellow was quite the swimmer. 

The Stone Sheep are indigenous to the mountains of northern BC and southern Yukon Territory.  They are darker and smaller then the Bighorn Sheep found in the Rocky Mountains, and they are sometimes mistaken for mountain goats, which are not found in this area.

I wish I could post all the pictures of the amazing scenery, but you would get tired of looking at them all, I have a bunch.
