    Thanks for sharing the pics. Nature sure makes anything man creates look lacking.

    Thank you so much, Ian. Interesting about the post not appearing. WP fixes itself eventually, I think.

    What a beautiful educational pictorial post Monica, thoroughly enjoyed that tour.
    I had not seen this post as it didn’t appear in my usual email address, not sure what happened, but have to keep an eye on it.
    Kind regards.

    Thank you! Only bear tracks in the backcountry. A large and gorgeous grizzly sow with 2 cubs from the road.
