|The Hills we'll be going into.|
My usual disclaimer: Remember this is not a park. It is a wilderness, and I'm on my own. Mystic Lake is another uninhabited area.
|No trip is complete without Hugin our guide.|
|Even in flight they watch over us.|
|The trail is not only high, but laden with traps.|
|Pine squirrels are abundant in the area.|
|Fungus growth on dead birch.|
|This forest is a regenerating forest which was virtually destroyed by mining. It's also been burnt over.|
|Northern Flicker, a ground woodpecker that feeds on ants.|
|Sun's reflection but it's really cold.|
|The wetlands of Mystic Lake are home to Blue Heron.|
|A Young Black Bear probably his first year away from Mom.|
I'll continue the Hike on Sky Watch Friday. Hope you're enjoying it so far, and we haven't even reached the lake yet.
