Out to the dump today

Had a few things to take to the dump today and thought why not put the camera in the truck in case I see something unusual.  I'm glad I did as I was unloading the truck a black bear came out  and behind her 4 small cubs.  First time I have seen one with 4 cubs.  They are all pretty small looking.

I was checking the state of the blueberries

Checking the blueberries yesterday too.  The temperature dropped the last couple of nights but I don't think anything was damaged.  This was taken up the Bouche Rd yesterday where I posted a pic previously on the blog.

Down to Milner Lake yesterday

Beautiful day yesterday, air was clear and cool even the bugs weren't so bad.  The water had gone down quite a bit since I had seen it last.  Walked out on the bog to take some pictures of cotton grass (Eriophorum) it was at it's best.

Temiskaming District Visitors Guide 2013

Submitted pictures a couple of months ago to find that 3 of mine had been chosen this year.  All were taken around Gowganda at the north powerline west of town, on Gowganda Lake fishing and canoeing on the Montreal River.

Back again finally

Been busy for quite some time now lots of work around home and shop work.  A few days taken up with cutting portages for the Friends of Temagami.  I volunteered to open up some old portages that hadn't been used for years, others were clearing old trails too.  This is part of a canoe route that was used a long time ago and are now open to canoeists to see some new country and be able to go as far as James Bay.  The blackflies and mosquitoes are very bad right now so anyone traveling up this way should be prepared.  Here is a shot of Outlook point tonight as the sun was setting.
