After a little bit of stabbing, prying and batonning, I obtained my prize. Moving on. More berries! Old faithful. My ESEE 5. I found some fatwood to throw in my pack for later. I usually never pack the stuff with me, unless I’m headed in to a known area where it is a lot harder to find. The ideal natural fire starter. Especially in vehement weather. This knife has been on a few adventures and mishaps. I should have brought my mushroom book. No idea what this is. Moving on to a different area, I was headed to a location. 70 km off of a maintained logging road. It was a long way in. No cell service whatsoever. The last maintained logging road in to location. I stopped to perform a function check on my shotgun before I hiking in from the truck and spotted these deer across the river. Good sign! Clear and clean high mountain water! The deer still standing there trying to figure out if I was a friend or foe. I love wild animals. The deer moved on and so did I. I was trying to find an area where two big rivers join up. This is the main river. Absolutely beautiful. Good fishing in this river. I was pretty keen on bear awareness on this trip. The salmon are really late coming up to this area and there were bear trails going down to the river everywhere I looked as it would seem. They were hungry. Luckily we have had a dumper season for wild berries. Looking up to one of the rock bluffs bear the river. Head on a swivel.
