Chilcotin Holidays

Wildlife viewing

Excited and ready, I was waiting for the car that would take me through the trails and roads to see amazing Chilcotin mountain views, lakes and wildlife. Czech girl from the little village in the big Canadian mountains so happy to see some wildlife animals she has never had a chance to see.

Head off from the ranch with our entertaining guide Franco who is ready to share with us his knowledge and stories and help us to look for the wildlife animals.

Wonderful drive with a view of the mountains and a lake. After few minutes driving we stop and see the deer enjoying her supper who almost didn’t realize that people were observing her for a while, and taking pictures. That was a nice warm up to look for other wildlife animals.

Franco showed us animal tracks and explained that rocks falling down on the road signify that there might be somewhere some wildlife.

While he was talking about it, a few meters up the hill were standing and playing herd of lovely bighorn sheep.

A few kilometers after sheep we experienced great show of an eagle fishing. It was great to see how graceful he was and circling around the lake to find a good spot to catch his prey.

I took some great pictures to make a good memory, and I have to say that the wildlife viewing was perfect for a photographer lover as me. I also got to take some pictures of beautiful yellow wild flowers.

Observing the mother nature and driving down the road through the mountains gave us a great opportunity to see all these other wildlife animals such as grouse, mountain goats,mule deer and more bighorn sheep. I also tried to call for bears a couple times, but they didn't show up. So next time wildlife viewing and scouting I have bears on my list.

The way back up to the ranch we were enjoying the beautiful sunset on the lake with the gorgeous mountain behind, listening to good music and many great things on the mind, ready to go back home and share our story with friends.
