The Dempster - A Second Look

This is my first crack at showing off a few more Dempster (and other northern) images. I sat down this morning with the grand intention of showing the best of the best, but only made it through 2 of my 24 Dempster and Yukon/NWT folders before I figured I better stop and just throw a post up. So needless to say, there will be a lot more images from the north to come in future weeks!

4 - provinces and territories covered (BC, Alberta, the Yukon and the NWT)

4 - number of wolf sightings, including the adorable little pup below

1,631 - cost of my brake repair

2 - number of lynx sightings

1 - number of lynx and kitten sightings (!!), photos to come

It may never win any awards, but it is one my first ever wild wolverine pictures!!

Hope you enjoyed this second glimpse at some of my shots from the adventure up north.

Happy shooting!
