The animals are out and about on the Gunflint Trail. They are always around but yesterday was a good animal encounter day.
Yesterday morning after dropping the kids off at the bus I went for a walk. The experts are saying the grouse are down this year but I would have a hard time believing it from the number I saw yesterday. There were several grouse in the woods, ducks on the lake, an eagle in a tree and a loon flying overhead.
When Bob was out on a tow in the afternoon he saw something swimming in the water. He thought it looked too big to be a loon and as he got closer he could see it was a bear. It was a small cub and the mom was no where to be seen. The bus driver reported seeing a moose in the pond and Mike saw a wolf on the road yesterday too.
