Seagull breeding colony

Next stop on our June 3 outing was to see the cliffs where seagulls nest.

First, a couple of mountain pics as we cross the fiord to get to the cliffs:

Here it is.  The cliffs are orange from a lichen that grows in abundance here, fertilized I guess by the seagull poop.  Those are our skidoos parked at the base.

Here's a close-up, but not that close- there are 4 gulls in this photo but you can hardly see them!

Another cliff photo.  You can see a lichen-covered cliff in the foreground, but it's in shadow now, the clouds are coming back.

Next stop... on our return to town, we stop to go jigging for Ugly fish!
