I was on the Yamaha Kodiac 450 ATV by 8:30 am. The backwards descent from the truck to the ground is the most exciting part of the day. Once I’d landed and geared up Gilbert sat behind me harnessed to the seat. We then immediately saw a couple of deer crossing the road.
Later we’d see a half dozen Roosevelt Elk. I got pictures of the last two.
We stopped to share a sandwich. Shoot some cans with my Ruger 30:06. Napped midday in the sun. Then cruised about looking at the mountain streams and beautiful snow capped mountain views. It’s lovely country. I was alone all day, never meeting anyone till I arrived back at the Lodge where Chris had roast lamb waiting.
Truly a beautiful North Vancouver Island day, 4x4ing.
