Brooks Falls, July 24

This tour was just an incredible adventure. Alice and I have concluded that it would be difficult for any future trips to equal or exceed this one. I ended up taking more than 8,000 wildlife photos, including 71 avian species (14 life birds) counting four probable avian species, and 14 mammalian species, not counting the beaver lodge.
