Now Featuring: Winter into Spring 2016


January 30 & 31, 2016    Animal Tracks Take Flight. Unusually Warm
It was another solo weekend for Ranger Mike. Environment Canada promised a warm but wet weekend and I was tempted to stay home but it has been two weeks since my last visit and I felt the pull of the North.

On the road I thought about the reason to travel three hours alone and like all those serious contemplations it echoed throughout the weekend. There really is nothing to do. It is lonely. So why do I go? The desire to have a piece of land in the north has burned in me since I was a child. This gift is with me now and I know that the hours are limited. I bathe in each precious minute as it were my last.

Also it is beautiful. On my 50 minute hike down the snowmobile trail from the truck to the cabin I noticed animal tracks in the snow. There were a lot of moose passing through. I saw small animal tracks, larger than a field mouse, much smaller than a dog or cat but large enough so that the animal sank in the snow and it must have been a fight just to move along. Suddenly the tracks ended with the signature print of bird wings. It pretty much will end like that for all of us I suppose. A struggle and then sudden flight. Each minute is precious.
