Luckily our first trip - the bus was half empty, so when we spotted wildlife, there weren't 100 tourists, speaking 7 different languages, stampeding to get camera lenses in place, all wrestling windows down and scaring creatures away being too noisy. We had less positive experiences later in the trip and appreciated this first bus ride even more!
The bus stops to let us gather berries - blueberries, bearberries and cranberries. No bears in sight, but we're all a bit wary. The fresh wild blueberry pancakes we made with our baggies full of blueberries were so delicious that even David, who doesn't like blueberries, enjoyed more than one helping!
