....love these Fred, it just doesn't get much better than that. It has been 50-yrs this summer since I lived in NW Ontario and saw the like of this. Thanks for sharing, no digital cameras in 1961, I have zero pictures of my year in the bush.

Thank you boBBrennan.
In the Eighties I was a a Surveyor. I the winters I did a lot of work in
Northern Alberta. Solid Bush with lots of Wild life. On a good day
I would see Bears , Deer , Raptors and Coyotes. The best part was they paid me to do that.
Oh, and I also had to work .
IMO That was the good life.

Good stuff Fred. I guess your deer start later than ours, our little ones have lost their spots now. I like the clear water as a backdrop.

I know about it, I was on the lake guiding everyday and usually saw what you did plus the moose & timber wolves. The winter was tough but as a 23-yr kid I enjoyed it too. I always thought that getting paid to be in wilderness paradise was ok..... The fish were/are big and the moose too.

That must have been a great experience. But the cold got to you so much that you moved to Texas?

I squeezed in 14-years living in Huntington Beach, CA (Orange County) before coming to Texas, that re-thermalized me.
