Meet Buck

 

Buck

Last November we made a return trip to Winthrop in the Methow Valley in Northern Washington State.  This whitetale buck, along with several doe, greeted us as we drove into our condo/cabin. The winter can seem dreary and colourless but in spite of the time of year you can often some rich colours.

 

Valley of a Thousand Falls

 

Valley of Thousand Falls

This was our destination of our first day of hiking – Whitehorn Campsite in the Valley of a Thousand Falls, 11 km from the trailhead.  The camp is just to the right of this photo.  Whitehorn Mountain is the snow-capped peak in the background.  The river is Robson River flowing out of Berg Lake.  The trail follows the river up to the right, through the saddle on the top right of the photograph – emphasis on the “up”.  The cabin on the left is a Ranger Station where you can radio for emergency help.
