The new highway still isn't so bad.... Look how much room we have. At least compared with the old highway....
(The old highway.... or rather the way Google maps would have you go. We tried this in 2010.... not so good for the truck's paint job).
This drive is pretty sweet! Great way to spend an evening.
Work Day 1
I was just sitting in the truck, ready to go to the site, when another one of the hotel guests walked across the parking lot.
The view from Site 1. Life's pretty good.
Work Day 2
We love our job!
Reminds me of growing up in Georgian Bay. We had a great time hiking around there, didn't we, B?
Good feeling gone!
We had to bushwack 1.4 km from the lake into the bush through Devil's Club, stinging nettle, gooseberries, raspberries and other prickly no-fun plants. Oh, did I mention that the 1.4 km was uphill the whole way. At some points I had my hands on the ground in order to climb, it was that steep. And the brush was so tall that we played Marco Polo just to keep track of one another - and to keep the bears away.
On the way back down (we took a slightly different way, but it was no gentler), we followed a game trail which came upon this mud wallow. Looks like the moose have fun here.
So glad to see the UTV at the end of the day. Let's get back to the truck now.
Some tracks we saw on the way out. Not often you see bear, wolf and moose tracks together. :)
Work Day 3
After another long day, we decided to stop at the nearby provincial park. Great views.
