Made my poor husband pull over in a weird spot to go back so I could take this photo.

Learned something new this trip.   This is a Pika,   it is a small mammal,   that lives in the mountains.    Looks like a mouse,   but has no tail and is also known for it's high pitched whistling.

Seagull guarding Mitten Lake, BC

Met with friends from Golden BC in Mitten Lake,  BC.   Gorgeous spot.   My only regret photo of the trip.   Was busy packing up the tent and gear and missed a Loon that had come up to the kids near the dock.  Ugh.....

Stuffed Golden Eagle

On the road for a Kootenay's Road Trip.   Didn't see any live animals on our first day.    So you get the dead, stuffed, spiderweb covered golden eagle in the Ghost Town of Three Valley Gap.

Bucked Off

When you get bucked off, the easiest way to explain it is you dropped your hat and got in a hurry to pick it up.

Don't piss off a Mom

This mummy was none to happy with me getting close to all the little ones.   She kept kicking up dirt so I couldn't see them.
