Most people don’t have the luxury of complaining about the lack of traffic on their morning commute to work. I won’t complain either but some days it can get pretty wild. Wild with animals that is. All in total, on my travels to and from work I have encountered a lynx, a bear, bald eagles, two baby foxes, a moose and her baby and just recently this hawk. I was riding my bike and stopped to snap a shot. He didn’t seem spooked in the least by my presence.
I may not have anywhere to buy shoes within 200km but I wouldn’t trade that in for the beauty I am privileged to encounter everyday.
