after a fabulous easy walk through deep forest with some really large spruce trees, many small flowers and a carpet of tiny ferns, we came through the last trees to the beautiful beach.
strange to walk out of the dark heavy undergrowth and suddenly be on a lovely sandy beach in the blazing sun. It really could not have been a more lovely day of sunshine and still water. With the late spring and summer we were fortunate to still have snow on the distant peaks.
I am familiar with large trees – coming from a rainforest area myself. But these spruce are SO straight right out of the ground, and clear of branches for up to about 50 feet. I am so used to the flaring trunks and sweeping lower branches of the cedars in our southern forest.
This newborn was only about 18 in tall and headed off the road when he froze and pretended to be invisible. His mum was not far away. amazing they can get up and run so soon after birth. He was quite beautiful – we were only sad that we frightened him
