May 28, 2014David Tonkyn and his students from Clemson are back again for their yearly visit.
We went bush-wacking in Sunlight Basin Saturday looking for anything interesting. And we found a few things! Grizzly tracks on the trail for openers and farther up, wolf tracks. Two boreal toads were discovered, ruffed grouse seemed to be everywhere and a pair of bluebirds checked us out.
We stumbled across a bear bed and possible den.
I guess what they experienced most was the feeling of being off trail on a mountain slope.
