We all begin somewhere☆ Have you ever pulled into the Village of Canal Flats off of British Columbia's Hot Springs Loop? The community may be quaint, but it holds a mighty secret. You can actually visit the source of the mighty Columbia via the Source of Columbia Greenway Trail. This 1.5km trail meanders through willows, bulrush, birch shrubland and more and loops you around the source of the Columbia River springing from the marshlands teaming with life. Interpretive signage tells the Ktunaxa Nation creation story significant to this site. ☆
Fun Facts: 1) #BCParks designated this site as a Wildlife Management Area recognizing its significance. 2) The Columbia River travels approximately 1,243 miles and drops 2,690 feet before reaching Pacific Ocean.
It’s not cypress in Arkansas. It’s definitely not what Washington is known for. It doesn’t hold the same regard as it does in the south-not even close. I won’t pretend it’s the same, but we found mallards in flooded timber in Washington. Now for some, that might not be a big deal. But when you’ve only been able to watch these kinds of hunts from a screen 2,300 miles away, it’s a pretty awesome thing.
Making mistakes is part of waterfowl hunting. Everyone makes mistakes, whether in their calling, shooting, decoy placement, boat handling or pointing at the ducks and flaring them off. Yes, I've made all the mistakes, from A to Z. Some of which are funny as I think back to them. What are some of the common mistakes your hunting partner have made? Tag them in the comment.
