It’s astonishing how much wildlife there is to see in America, everywhere you look, the outdoors is simply teeming with it. And, it’s all enormous! Every creature from the large to the small was oversized, even down to the flies!
Just some of the highlights; Marmots, Wild Bison, Antelopes, Chipmunks, giant Spiders, Deer, Moose, Butterflies, Mountain Goats and Vultures.
Last year, in perhaps a moment of madness, I decided to enter myself in to the Mont Blanc half marathon. 23km long, with over 1000m of vertical ascent, around the mountain trails of Chamonix. Whether this was a wise move or not will be revealed next week…! So I’ve been training, and earlier in the week I thought it would be a good idea to run the whole course, mainly to see whether I could actually do it! Of course I took my camera, as this, early summer, is a truly beautiful time of the year. In almost 4 hours I saw maybe 10 people, and had the chance to spot things that I just wouldn’t have seen if I hadn’t been on foot. Lovely!
