A Bush Ride in the North !





I recently went with my son for a long long ride in the bush on his ATV,to Bow and Arrow Lake,and we drove all the way to Silvia Chutes, what a sight I wish I could have had a closer look but I was scared to ,its very steep .
2 creeks run into each other and down a narrow rock tunnel to form the chutes its so beautiful there
I could of stood there all day just listening to the water rushing by ....
I packed a little picnic and we eat it right there beside the water all while watching for bears... yikes... apparently they like turkey sandwiches too ... haha !

Here I am at Silvia Chutes,dressed in orange its hunting season up here and in the bush you must wear at least 400 square inches of orange its the law, I also had an orange helmet to wear that isin't in the picture. This gives you an idea how high up we were.

We saw lots of partridge, we only shoot with a camera, this little guy was holding so still trying so hard to blend in with the scenery.
Saw lots of moose fresh tracks from the early morning, we could see it was a cow moose with her calf walking along..

We spotted a hawk but it was quite far and quite fast , it was going in circles maybe it had spotted its lunch ?


These rocks are very special as many of you southerners may never get to see something like this is called "glacial erratic," a rock carried a distance from its origin by a glacier and then deposited when the glacier melts.( I told you I lived up north this proves it)

A new bridge in the middle of nowhere...






This lake is called Whitefish Lake and it was such a gorgeous scene with the clouds reflecting in the water which was as smooth as glass.Pretty up here !
That my friends was my ride in the northern country !

Your photos just took my breath away! And your hair looks terrific. When I wear my helmet I hate having to take it off because my hair is sure to be flat to my head.

Wow, your ride in the northern country is absolutely amazing and beautiful.

Thoughts of bears would scare me a bit, but I'm with you on wanting to hang around and enjoy all this work of God.....

Beautiful!!!!!

Beautiful pictures! Beautiful area, looks like fun to go exploring up there. Yes, you are North...let's see, glacial rock and moose and the "eh" is a giveaway. The one time I saw rock like that was in Alaska. But my guess, is you don't live in Alaska, just a neighbor.

Wow...what gorgeous pictures!!! That Whitefish lake looks amazing.

I can see why they would want you wearing lots of orange with hunting season. You certainly enjoyed seeing lots of wildlife. It looks like it was a really fun day out and about.
