On Sunday I was at the creek where I had my sighting decades ago. The first and last photos are at the creek, el. about 1500', and the middle one is near the summit, near 4000'. The trees are all fully leafed and ground plants are green already.

In the middle pic., the brown ribbon at the base of the mountain across the valley is the mighty Fraser River, and my town is in the distant valley across the river in the upper right.

Looks like a great outing! I'm surprised by the lack of leaves on the deciduous trees; here on the west coast of Canada they've been fully leafed out for a couple of weeks already. What's the elevation where the photos were taken?

All the way up at 800 to 1000' feet:) Down here at 60 feet, Poplars and birches have small leaves out, red maples are flowering. And Spring was early!

I used to take the ferry from Seattle to Victoria when I was a kid. Once the border is back to normal BC is on my bucket list for exploration... beautiful!

Those female elk do not look pressured at all. Not like deer that I have seen where they are very jumpy on public land. You two fellows live in some great country. ind of makes me want to move those area's.

The group had a great time out at the workshop, we cast some bear tracks while we were out durrimg a casting demo and identified 2 new whipporwhils and a great horned owl that night. Unfortunately, as bigfooting goes, no anomolis activity that night but everyone had a good time.

Yeah, I know that feeling. I bought my Inreach after my daughter and I had to hike 11km (about 7 miles) at dusk in cougar country for help to get unstuck a couple of years ago.

 

My Inreach, and about $1000 of other stuff, was stolen from my H3 last Saturday, so I replaced it with the new Zoleo yesterday. It's about $100 cheaper, and the subscription plans are very close in price and features.

You are still going to have hike if you are going to track one f these guys. There is no pattern these fellows where you can pin point them on a map. It be nice to look on a map and say that " hey this creature will be traveling through this bottle neck" or ' all I have to do is be on this ridge and look down in this valley and wham bam I'll have me a creature" Heck if it was that easy like deer or elk we would not need a forum to talk about bigfoot. We just look on a map and say there it is ! that's where I am going to bag me a bigfoot.

I got out for a very nice day in the hills with 2 of my good trail buddies, Thomas Steenburg and Magniaesir. Our goal was a small lake high in a mountain pass between 2 creek drainages. We'd been there before, a few years ago, and felt it was remote enough and "squatchy" enough to warrant another visit. We made it to the lake, but weren't able to descend the creek on the far side, as right alongside the lake the trail was covered in 3 to 4' of heavy wet spring snow. We spent a couple of hours there, enjoying the beautiful weather and looking for tracks in the mud and snow around the lake.

 

No interesting tracks were located, and the only wildlife evident were a couple of ducks in the lake, and drumming of grouse in the surrounding forest. We sat and had a light lunch, then headed back out the way we had come, in order to get Thomas back home in time to appear on yet another podcast being recorded tonight.
