Another trip to Anahim Lake

Two days and nights of strong winds have opened up my pond.

the ice has gone from the lower pond at Ginty Creek.

I had to make another trip to Anahim Lake yesterday.  Saw all kinds of wildlife.

A red-tailed hawk:

Despite the winds, there were no cracks in the ice at Nimpo Lake.  The pool where I saw the swans on voting day (previous post) was no larger, but now the osprey has arrived.

But most exciting of all were two mountain cariboo on – of all places – Cariboo Flats, which is about half way between my turnoff and Nimpo Lake on highway 20 on the Chilcotin.
