With the snow melt and the resulting ground thaw growth here in the north happens at a rapid rate, new grass shoots show almost immediately and trees burst with new buds. This shortened spring and summer found in Northern BC is the reason for the race to begin this cycle of life! The wildlife is obviously quick on its heels and the quest for nutrition after a long barren winter is first and foremost. This is what we saw in and around our town-house in the suburbs of PG! First came the Blacktail Deer and then the Cow Moose and her calf. One can see the coat shedding for the coming warmer months.
