One of the nicest things about working outside at this time of year is getting to see all the gorgeous wildflowers in bloom!
When working east of Nordegg in 2014 Vince found this little fawn. The spots on the fawn are for camouflage, to help him blend into his environment. These spots will last for the first 90-120 days of his life and will fade when he grows his warmer winter coat.
You never know who you might meet when working out on the land. Kurt snapped this photo of a sweet little bunny in 2014.
While not as well camouflaged as the spruce grouse chicks, this toad does a pretty good job of keeping hidden.
We usually encounter at least one herd of wild horses each season when working in Sundre Forest Products FMA. This rather skittish group was encountered in 2014 by Madeline and Vince.
And just like that field season is over, now its time to buckle down and complete artifact cataloging, site forms and final permit reports!
We never know what we are going to find when out walking in the woods. This summer we came across this neat modern cabin with a roof that doubles as a tree stand. The cabin overlooks a pretty stream and has nice fire pit with split log benches around it to boot.
