When Brian was at the CMH Bobbie Burns Lodge ‘guest guiding’ last week, he photographed some spectacular flowers. He said “The high elevation landscape makes the heart sing”. We agree, Brian!
Standing knee deep in a huge grizzly digging, Brian photographed CMH guide, JF, who was admiring the evidence of the power and determination the bear displayed to get at his ground squirrel prey. Brian is “guest guiding” at the Bobbie Burns Lodge for a few days this week, a lodge located deep in the Purcell Mountains, near the Bugaboos.
Brian is up in the Purcell Mountains with Canadian Mountain Holidays at one of their back country lodges, working as a guest guide. He’s hiking in the high country by day, and conducts a wildlife related presentation every evening after dinner for the guests. The helicopter is used as a taxi to drop them off and pick them up at the end of the day, allowing for some incredible exploration into some amazing landscapes.
This week on CBC’s Homestretch, Brian Keating is in excellent grizzly habitat in the Bugaboo Mountains in British Columbia where there is lots of evidence of grizzly activitiy this summer.
Wondering where Brian is going next? Next week he heli-hikes with CMH Summer Adventures! Have a look:
This week on CBC’s Homestretch, Brian speaks to Doug Dirks about the Orca Whale and the hunt that he was able to experience. He also talks about the Humpback Whales who were bubble net feeding – a rare experience for nature lovers!
A few weeks ago, Brian spoke about the duck in his backyard. Here is a video of the duck and the nesting tube he built for her. This is the duck’s second clutch, the first having been eating by a skunk in the area.
