These are some images from February that I found on this blog: http://www.isleroyalewolf.org/
More information regarding these wolves and the project that these photos are from can be found here:
Some more updates on the wolves at the International Wolf Center in Ely Minnesota. Check out the video to find out how the wolves are handling this year’s winter. During this cold spell, the wolves have had extra food resources, warm straw beds and fortunately, high pressure brings plenty of sun. They did extremely well and are very active.
Winter time is difficult for everyone not just humans. When winters become severe the Bison of Yellowstone National Park migrate to areas where they can find something to graze on. This can affect not just the Bison, but the cattle and the farmers. Check out this video to learn more:
The beginning of this song has some great scenes featuring some woods, but aside from that its still a great song. Pumps me up and makes me wanna head out somewhere on a road trip or any other type of adventure out doors. This will be part of my playlist for a while.
Living in an urban environment can make it difficult to experience real nature. I have lived in Chicago for the past 20 years and I am glad that we have several Forest Preserves surrounding the city. Without these stretches of nature we would truly live in an urban concrete jungle.
Schiller Woods is located on the northwest outskirt of Chicago. Part of this Forest Preserve borders the city and the other side the suburb of Schiller Park. These woods are a popular destination for picnics, family gatherings, BBQs and sports events. I enjoy walking the trails and occasionally I ride my bike through there as well.
Last October I was feeling fed up with the day to day grind so I started visiting the forest on an almost daily basis. Since I worked in the afternoons I had time to visit before my work day began. The fresh air and the sights made my days so much better. Fall is a wonderful time since every day brings new colors and new sights. I eventually got inspired to bring my camera and I snapped some photos:
Kawishiwi Falls outside Winton MN are a hike worth going on. The trail isn’t too difficult but the views are rewarding. I snapped these photos back in October of 2012. This was my first time at the falls and the second time ever in Northern Minnesota. This was the trip that made me fall in love with the entire area. Im sure I will visit this spot more often.
I have been busy organizing all my photos on my hard drive and I came across some pictures that were taken before this blog was started. These photos were taken on my second ever trip to Northern Minnesota. Essentially these views made me fall in love with the Superior National Forest.
