We started the day off with a short hike to Rainbow Falls. It is a series of about 5 falls and most times there is a rainbow overhead. On this day we saw a swarm of mosquitoes up above! Mel is drinking the cream soda he got from Rachel for Father's Day.
After Rainbow Falls we drove to Obatanga Provincial Park to have a look and then drive on to Wawa to meet Paul and Sue. When we got there I noticed that the park was loaded with these beautiful pink lady slipper orchids (along with swarms of mosquitoes) .
only to discover that...
The keys would not turn in the ignition switch!! Meanwhile we were watching the mosquitoes dive at the windows trying to get inside the RV. Paul and Sue were waiting to meet us in Wawa. What to do... We called the place where we were to meet and someone found them. Paul and Sue drove out to Obetanga then we all stayed at the dumping station in the stranded RV overnight.
We did go on a very nice hike through the forest before we hunkered down next to the dumping station for bed :) We found these unusual green orchids.
We saw some very unusual mosses and fungi along the trail and spaghnum moss grows everywhere.
These are moose droppings. They look like large deer or rabbit droppings as you can see by comparing the size of Mel's hands to them.
On another note... We discovered that Hunny Bunny is nuts about bananas. She must be a Hawaiian bunny. We have to hang the bananas from a hook in the RV or else she will climb up on the counters to get at them.
