We spent Saturday night in an IGA store parking lot. Found internet access at the visitor center caught up on our email.
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.
From lush green mountains to rocks cliffs, around every corner was a surprise.
Muncho Lake is were we are staying.
The state flower for MN is the Lady Slipper, I have only seen it in pink, this is my first yellow Lady Slipper. Fields and fields of Lady Slippers.
Mikes sunset pictures. Muncho Lake Provincial Park is the prettiest so far.
The first picture is taken from our MH looking across the road from our campsite. The other one is of Stormy and Lucy in the morning, Lucy must have been pretty cold, she cuddled under Mike’s pillows.
Just click on any of the pictures to enlarge it.
