About a month ago, Marc and I hiked Killarney’s La Cloche Silhouette loop trail, but not without some consequences to our pets. We have two cats, Grooby-doo and Currdles, and two black labs, Fetcher and Maggie. This trip affected one of each, and although Fetcher is fine now, I can’t say the same for Currdles :((frowny face). Oh, […]
We kept hearing a hooting owl every time we went out back to feed the chickens. One day I decided to follow the sound into the forest, first going back for my camera. I told my dad what I was up to and he decided to come, too. We didn’t get very far at all before seeing the […]
We always stop to take turtles off the road when we see them (so long as it’s safe road-wise). Usually it’s just a matter of taking the turtle to a grassy area beyond the shoulder, in the same direction it was heading.

Snapped lots of various mushroom and fungi pics this year — here are a few of my faves… Half were taken in the French River area, the rest on the Duchesnay Falls trail in North Bay.
These awesomely weird wild flowers were growing in the backyard! Never saw them there before… We saw these pretty wild flowers while hiking at Pine Creek in West Arm.
I saw this water snake while hiking at Pine Creek in West Arm. It wasn’t in a lake or pond or anything — the water snake was just hanging out in a big puddle on a quad trail… This is a pretty cool shot, what with the water snake’s head poking out of the water…
Back in May, I had been on a three-day trek in Jirisan National Park, but now I was excited to access more restricted areas of the park and to learn about its ecology. I would be spending the weekend on an eco-tour as a volunteer with the Korea Wetland Project. Day 1 I met my travel companions, Won-ho […]
