we went for a walk out the west side of the island. (we'd walked in on the east side)...i tend to be a little dyslexic so i may have to switch that. hmm....anyway...this is a view of the pinnacle from the west side. there were whale bones scattered about on this side which was fun.
our walk today was a bit abbreviated. we went up to prospect heights trailhead. it was a little breezy when we took off, but soon it became quite blustery. soon the wind was really blowing. within a week or two it will be impossible to walk there....teh snow is soft and i was starting to post hole when i was walking. still i was dressed okay and kept walking..until..i saw a moose bolting ahead of us. animals get really spooked in the wind. i can understand that, and this poor moose was really freaked out. some guy got the hell kicked out of him on the coastal trail a few years back. he was running and it was windy. that is a bad combo. he never forgave the moose or the city for not going out and killing the moose. after he healed he up and shot some random moose that he ran across in kincaid park. as a human,i think we are the responsible party. moose get freaked in wind...so i turned around and left the moose to the trail.
