It’s Free Forum Friday. Please report any giant beavers. Or marmots.
Ed note: I finished my Pacific Crest Trail Hike at Manning Park. Marmots have a shrill, piercing warning that sounds like a whistle. I was able to do a passable enough impression so as to confuse these little rodents. I guess you had to be there. It was a humourous interaction with nature.
Here is my photo from crossing into Canada on the PCT. I’d show you a picture of me at the PCT terminus but I had been out for awhile and also up all night battling a herd of deer at my last campsite who veiwed me as an interloper. In fact, they took my hiking poles during the night; apparently for the salt content.
