October Wrap up
As we draw a close to our summer / fall season I’m amazed at how the internet has shrunk our world in many ways. This season we had guests from Israel, Norway, Finland, Netherlands, and the U.S. Along with our own much beloved Canadians.
Most of whom found Sheep Creek Lodge by way of surfing the net. It’s kind of cool when world travelers tell you your cabins are one of the highlights of their many travels.
Some of the highlights this year has to belong to some local Albertan’s, our Fairview Alberta guests. They were able to photograph a cougar during daylight hours and then topped it off by watching a lynx snatch a ruffled grouse chick from the trail right in front of them! I told them to never come back as I couldn’t top that trip.
Most of our guests will have their own interaction with nature, though usually not that dramatic. Guests viewed mountain goats, bighorn sheep, grizzlies, moose, deer, elk, black bears, and innumerable bird species while at the lodge this season.
For the Bjornson family it was all about the grandson out-fishing Grandpa Dale, and he sure did that with a beautiful bull trout and grayling, both of which he released. What ever your reason for visiting you’ll find Sheep Creek lodge to be both off the beaten track and a step back in time. Hope to see you sometime.
