Oregon Wolf Packs

This is how I determine where I will NOT be hiking. As a woman who travels light and solo I have to be careful of wolves–whether they’re hairy, dangerous beasts stalking me in the night or the four-legged kind.

They spotted four new pups this year close to, but thankfully out of, my hiking jurisdiction. Yeah, yeah, yeah, they’re good for the environment…manage wildlife…deer control…chewing on my leg…scared of humans…ruptured artery…lovely howls in the night…dismemberment…..

I’ll stick to whale watching, thanks.

Brits surf the River Severn bore

by allthoughtswork

Hundreds of spectators line the banks of the river Severn in Gloucestershire to watch surfers and kayakers riding a 4 star bore, September 30 2019. Bores are rated up to five and reach their highest peaks due to many factors including when the moon is closest overhead.

Fewer shark attacks, but a much higher chance of swallowing farm runoff. Surf bums must pick their battles.

One-Liner Wednesday — #37

by allthoughtswork

“It’s funny, I had a hunter last year or the year before, he asked me, we were out on a mountain and he said, ‘What do you carry in your pack for survival gear?’ I didn’t really know how to answer the question at first because I didn’t have…anything. And I said to him, ‘I don’t survive out here, I live out here. This is home, out here.”

— Heidi Gutfrucht, British Columbia hunting guide and outfitter, Koneline: Our Land Beautiful
