Hey Steve, there is wifi at the Visiters Centre.. slow but its there for the public to use. Outside the park there is good cell service for the most part. The tree canopy is still mostly green with some trees showing a small change. yesterday was 28c so its still hot. I have been cutting wood and its just a bit hot for that. theres a long winter coming. ill see if i can shoot a landscape today and post it up here.

A landscape would be nice Jeff but don't go to a lot of trouble, I don't want to be blamed if you run out of wood about March 1st.
So, I'm also trying to get used to celsius and kilometers, it must have been near 82F in your area. It was 89f here today and hot weather is forecast for a few more days, then several days of rain following. Fall colors are likely to be short lived this year where I live.
We are working long hours trying to prepare for leaving here on the 29th and cutting wood is not on the list so I may be cutting this year and it will go straight to the stove. I probably wouldn't survive in Canada unless I changed my priorities.

It definitely shows. A couple of years ago I had a 100ft oak tree taken down and my son and I split it ( much by hand) i remember it very well. Im still burning the wood:-)

We use natural gas, but have a wood burning fireplace ,and we love it. The neighbors have all switched to gas logs, they say I'm nuts but no comparison in atmosphere of a real fire. Its worth the extra work. Yes a splitter is the way to go.

Pondrader,

What's a realistic expectation of the kind of wildlife I might see the last few days of September; first few days of October. Can you be specific (moose, bear, fox etc).

Thanks.

John

Hey John , The moose are starting rut now and will go for a while but Moose are everywhere here, Bear's are the same, you never know when your going to run into them. Fox can be good if the summer crowd did not run them all over.. ( Speed Kills ) The Wolves are a little harder but day break is your best bet. Most of the Owl's that you can think of are in and around, but the bush is thick and can make it a bit more of a challenge but sometimes there just there. Fall / winter is my fav time to find and shoot wildlife. there food sources become more predicable and they of course flock to it. Of course theres the birds as well,,,,, there are an abundance and can keep a guy busy all on there own. Because its a Park everything there is more so use to the human and can sometimes be more forgiving to the door slamming foot shuffling non shooters so you should be able to get some great stuff.

Just Keep your eyes open lol
