A young cow caribou
A Stellar Jay
A hungry bear, apparently eating grass.
We are in Teslin, YT. This country is incredibly rugged, but beautiful in an unfamiliar way. The struggle for existence in such forbidding territory is clearly written in the scraggly trees, the stunted bushes, the wariness of the animals, and the gaunt, wrinkled faces of the human inhabitants. Why anyone would wish to live here is a mystery to me. We are grateful to be able to see it, but even more grateful not to call this home.
