Where I stayed
The hike we went on today to Lake Taggart was just a short one of just over 5km. Tomorrow's will be less peopled so more chance of bears. We sang and talked all the way as the info pamphlet said that would keep them away. The people at the information centre were very helpful and a lady told us that she always hikes with bells on her sticks
So far we have not seen any wildlife except for small things like a ground squirrel (also known as whistle pigs) and bugs. I would like to see a moose. At the posh resort they have an animal sighting book, one wit wrote homo sapiens with a comment of fairly well behaved. I think we are now homo sapien sapiens - can anyone tell me whether that is right or not??
There was a lovely log cabin church which was dedicated to the lives lost on 9/11. It is used for weddings a lot by the information in the church. It is a bigger than Picton Church in Bunbury but is still very cute.
We also went to one of the last remaining log cabins from when the area was first opened up for grazing. It is lovely in summer but I don't think I would have liked to live there in winter. The view from the kitchen sink is quite wonderful.
