Telegraph Cove BC

I spent 2 nights in telegraph Cove en route to and from Hanson Island. It's a neat little gathering of cabins centred around a wooden boardwalk that was formerly a lumber mill and salmon saltery. I had to grab these photos on an overcast drizzly early morning just before leaving. I plan go back, hopefully for more boatrides. Horizon.

Orcalab, Hanson Island BC

I feel very fortunate to have visited Paul Spong and the Orcalab on Hanson Island earlier this year. It is a land based research station, that studies whales around the Johnstone Straight and the Inside Passage off of northern Vancouver Island. Paul conducted early research on communicating with whales in the 1960's, and moved to Hanson Island in 1970 to continue his studies of whales in the wild. I saw some incredible things from the observation deck that afternoon, and had a chance to walk around the bay a bit at low tide. Spinner. 
have a look:   listen to hydrophones here:

Spruce Grove, Alberta

I met these guys late last fall in a field near Spruce Grove, AB. I also spent the next day in a hamburger factory.
I didn't take pictures in the hamburger factory, probably for the best. noblex.
