    I love the different directions Les take us with wilderness experiences. My favorite part of this episode is when he points out half a dozen edible plants within arms reach. This abundance supports the hypothesis there are enough plants and calories to sustain a Sasquatch population. And enough to enjoy a tasty treat! Nice job Les.

      As I’m breathing smoke-filled air, I’m thinking of all of the plants lost with the trees, the habitat that is just floating by. Les’ appreciation of our world is inspiring and essential. Would we consider introducing this to our children in their schooling? Expanding learning to include the natural world outside of books and classrooms? Something needs to change, because things are changing all around us and not for the better. Time is short and lives are shorter.

        Great thinking Diane C, I’d vote for that, even better if Sasquatch was known to the mainstream. They’re known to kidnap women and children, and bet the government knows, and won’t take that responsibility. Thinking there are books, and science classes. yes your right about change, but that is for a different website.
