Reviving an old thread... I did a 4-day trip to a park mostly composed of marshes and bike trails.



The beavers were building a hut a few feet from the flotting boardwalk. The little snake is shedding its skin. It took two days to get there and it rained a lot on the second day. There were still some distant thunderstorms at night but it was calm at the park. I rode a portion of the park's road back and forth with lighting flashing in the distance and fireflies flashing close by. Felt like some kind of fairy tale.

A few shorebirds resting close to my campsite. This was at the end of my trip. The cycling was over and went camping on one of the Mingan islands. I missed an opportunity to do a whale watching tour. Apparently, humpbacks were breaching and one guy on a See-Doo got bumped by an orca.

Again, more Newfoundland wildlife. Just came back this morning and missed a great ending shot. As soon as the plane stopped, a falcon landed on the tip of the airplane wing while the engines were still running. Oh well...

Click for larger image!

Humback whale at Bay Bulls (Witless bay):


Common Mures and Razorbill, also at Bay Bulls:


A handful of birds...


Atlantic Puffin, still at Bay Bulls:


Black Duck and Malards at the Pippy park campground in St-John's:




A Brown Trout at the Fluvarium next to the campground. These are wild fishes in a tributary of the Rennie's river, which was restored in the mid-80's and early 90's.



Well, that's it for this tour!

Reindeer's day at the beach.

The water in the background is the Barents Sea. Taken on the road from Vard to Hammingberg, Norway in Early June.
