Lynn and I were at Trout Lake in Sasquatch Park.
We paddled a couple hundred meters around the lake when I heard a chirping sound along the shore line. It sounded like a lot of chickens, so I went to investigate!
When I got to the shoreline in about 10 cm of water, I was surrounded by the sounds. I looked around me and saw hundreds of frogs mating in the shallow water.
We've paddled around this little lake hundreds of times and have never seen this before! I took the video with an I-Phone, so no good close-ups, but the sounds are interesting https://vimeo.com/124630384
Southern Mountain Caribou. Saw a small herd (8-10) in the northern Cariboo mountains. What a treat! They were so beautiful prancing atop the snow. I believe they are considered some degree of "threatened," mainly due to habitat loss.
