June in August

Sorry about the radio silence over here. We were out of town for a couple of weeks, doing a tour of campgrounds in upper New York state. It was a great camping trip, even with our tent floating in rain-created lake, and a ripped quad muscle at the most inopportune time (a story for another day). But the campfires, views, hikes, wildlife, and friends more than made up for any shortfalls.

On one such rainy morning, we headed to the W!ld Center in Tupper Lake, NY. What an amazing museum, you have to check it out if you’re in the area. Totally hands-on and interactive, it is a model of what a nature museum should be. The kids had a blast, but what was surprising was that I did too. You have to love a design that caters to every demographic, and even manages to teach some biologists a thing or two.

On a short hike outside the centre, I encountered these *ahem* preoccupied June bugs, in a delicate position. I love the way their colouring is highlighted by the browning leaves.
