Boomer's move out of the lethargy of the hot summer, and our finding of the new trail over the ridge behind our apartment gives us a perfect opportunity to give you a view of a Boreal phenomena-the Tundra, Taiga, bog or fen, whatever you want to call it. The ridge in these photos, has the usual selection of trees, birch aspen and spruce, pine as well as some black spruce, which I have written about earlier. We'll be moving into something very different.As interesting as the sky is, the sky is overcast,and we're going into a thick forest that surrounds the actual tundra.

Similarly the four legged, non-hibernating critters will adapt to their winter mode.
