There are lots of reasons to look up when walking on the Wild Pacific Trail.
The magnificent coastal views.
The splendor of rain forest trees and strange obsession of people with locks.
The danger of looking down is that it might lead to finding this.
There have been multiple reports of wolves out and about. Sightings and howlings at twilight and dusk.
We don’t have a dog, so we’re not normally out then. It’s only the garbage that needs to be taken out at night. The threat there is for bears. They like to hang out near dumpsters for late night snacks. Of garbage, not people.
But the bears haven’t woken up yet. And it’s hubby who takes out the garbage. He can toss bags better and further than me. He runs faster too.
