Owl-less Survey

"It's good... just gotta take it slower."

Famous last words, before proceeding a few more metres in the CR-V and getting stuck. Only nine of the 40-kilometre stretch of foggy logging road had melted to a point of navigability. Cue rigourous rocking/pushing sessions, a couple hundred metres in reverse to the nearest turnaround point, and then high-tailing it back to asphalt. The 2011 nocturnal owl survey was over before it began.

Great grey owls Survey? Near Pinawa? or on the way to Otter Falls?

We were on a logging road north of Pine Falls, that heads into Nopiming. Part of an all-owls listening survey for the U of M.
