He’s been feeding on the lush greens in the yard;

When it comes to keeping bears and people safe, hopefully I did the right thing?

  • bird feeders have been taken down
  • hummingbird feeders are hanging high and safe
  • no livestock
  • electric fence around compost pile
  • no trash, groceries, animal feed, coolers or any odorous item in cars or outdoors

Always keep a clean camp!

 

 

Spring Ride and Float

Easter Sunday has been the best day so far this spring! Camas Road is still closed for cars and GTTSR at Lake McDougall Lodge. The bike ride turned out to be 70 miles (112km) to the end of the road and back- made for a happy day! The river is running beautifully. I think I might be done skiing!

Bowman Lake

Calypsos and Clematis were out all along the Bowman Lake Trail

Bike Rafting

There are very few other things I’d rather do on a hot spring day than to ride my bike past the road closure and hop on the river to float back to the Hostel. The Hostel will be open next month: Time to Play!

Bowman, Kintla and GTTSR

The first bike rides of the season are always a treat!

Glacier Views

Hiking and Biking season has just started

There is still plenty of snow patches and lots of mud around but the hiking is going and riding a bike into Big Prairie makes me appreciates spring and the coming summer. A truly beautiful weekend to be outdoors.
