More Bullcrap

This is the time of Moose Rut. A time when we can see lots of moose concentrated into a small area. Great wildlife viewing. It should be in the swing of thing with lots of bulls and cows, but for some odd reason, its starting late and not many are around. So I had to hunt them up.

I stopped and sat down to take a break, when I spotted this bull in the bushes. Lucky me, I would have hated to walk by and surprised him.

This bull charged by surprising us and stopping our hearts for a second or two.

Big Bull, in the willow, chasing little bull off. Right before little bull charged us. We had to skidaddle pronto.

We ran behind a tree for "protection" LOL.

And the Big Bull still going after the little bull.

Berry Nice

We headed up to Manitoba Mountain for some hiking and berry picking. Valley sure appreciated running off leash.

Before long it started snowing.

And Snowing...

the blueberry picking was great once we dropped down out of elevation. 1 quart in about 15 or 20 minutes :)

Its Enough to Make You See Red

This weekend, our first weekend of fall, we headed out for hike and collection of blueberries. Despite the wind, off and on again rain, and a bit of sunshine, we collected a bucket's worth and climbed up to Ptarmigan Pass to warm up and gain a view.
