Early March at Bowman Lake

The sun is already pretty strong this time of the year and there were three wolves taking a nap in the sun way out on Bowman Lake, I mean way, way out there! Unfortunately you can’t make them out in the photos, even with binoculars they were barely recognizable for what they are. We also saw a raven feeding on what looked like a kill on the north shore of the lake.

Clouds can be quite dramatic on Bowman Lake.

Snow has been crusty on top most of this month but there has been plenty enough to ski over most downfall and brush.

Not a lot of fresh tracks on my skies this year so far but for the usual suspects: deer and elk.

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!

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!
