RE: Wildlife Encounters



Well some of our best wildlife have been behind the wheel.  A cougar crossing a gravel road that stretched in length clear across the road - on the way down from a high horse camp with a Boy Scout group.  Mount Rainier area Washington state.  We had ladies walking down behind us that were afraid to be in a vehicle on the step road.

 

Two moose in a pond up to their necks by Kellogg Idaho, when we just happened to pull off to find a remote rest stop on the way to pick up a new truck at Dave Smith Motors.  (Largest Dodge dealer in the world by sales volume).

 

A black bear cub zipping across a steep mountain pass road - Chinook Pass in Washington right after it opened from the winter - Spring drive in the wife’s new 2010 MINI Cooper at the time.  He ducked under the guard rail and just keep heading straight down lickity split thru the brush and trees.  Only other time in my life I have seen a black bear in the wild, was from a boat heading to Stehekin on the lake.

 

Most recently another 2 Moose on the road, adolescents at the base of Steptoe Butte in eastern Washington just as we came back down from the view point.  Always heard there were “Moose on the Palouse”, only time we ever saw any.  A real surprise if you know the area that is mostly rolling wheat fields.

 

People think of “Seattle” and Washington as a wet place, but we have some great green wilderness in the state because of the rainfall.  When my son started school in Atlanta, Georgia - I compared annual rainfall.  The same - but they get it all at once in downpours - we get it constantly in a drizzle.  LOL.

Hi – I’d like to start a new fun thread on interesting wildlife encounters while driving.  Earlier this week I was in Dresden, a small Maine river town between the state capital of Augusta and the coast, inspecting a road stream culvert.  As I was climbing down the embankment I heard this flapping sound.  I looked up and a bald eagle was taking off from a small tree about 30 feet away.  He flew to another tree about 100 feet away and sat watching me.  I continue down the embankment and heard more noise.  I looked up and saw an adult and a juvenile bald eagle fly away from another tree close by and land on a tree a couple of hundred feet away.  Three eagles in about 30 seconds and they were all watching me looking at the culvert!  The stream was free flowing below the culvert but ponded above.  I guess they were looking for fish swimming in the open water.  How about that!  Bob from Maine
