Exploration Date

All photos taken on June 20, 2022. We have been in a bit of a rainy spell of late, but managed to find a window to bike around our small city and see what was shaking.

Wild World

All photos taken on March 29, 2022. There are some Bunchberry walks where you can hear the wildlife all around you as you walk, but never see a bird or animal. And there are other days, where the forest bursts out in joyous birdsong and you are surrounded by a Snow White film in TechnicolourContinue reading “Wild World”
