This morning I am sharing photos of woodland caribou that were taken using Kodachrome 25 and 64 slide film. I photographed the Avalon herd many times over the years but recently the herd has dropped from over 6,000 animals to less than 100. There are a number of reasons for the drastic decline including: coyotes and other predators, brainworm and other parasites and poaching. The last time I was down there, I spoke to a guy who lives in a nearby community and he told me that he believed there were around 70 caribou left in the herd.

This morning I am sharing photos taken along the trail down the Manuels River during a hike in July, 2001. It certainly was an interesting walk and when we reached the ocean, we crossed the river and walked up the other side, which wasn't really a trail at all. I know the trails have been under construction for many years and suspect they are much better these days. I'll have to do it again if the weather cooperates.

You may be pleased to know that it actually cleared up and got warmer
yesterday afternoon. The temperature here was around 22°C (74°F) in the shade which makes it the warmest day in 2 weeks. It is supposed to be nice here again today.
I find it interesting that the fourth photo is the most popular moose photo I uploaded to Pinterest and it has been repinned many times. If you are a member of Pinterest, feel free to check any of my Boards at: https://www.pinterest.com/kbrucelane/

I am sharing more moose photos this morning including a couple of winter.You can get an idea of the danger moose pose to motorists. Whenever you are driving on our highways, you should be on the alert for one of these large animals to be on the road - especially after dark!!!
Hopefully it warms up a bit today so I can get a few new photos to share.
