Angela Bohlke is a native Minnesotan, temporary New Orleanian, and current Portlander who spends most of her free time (with her camera and/or dog) hiking, mountaineering, skiing, and traveling to far flung places. She is perpetually in search of a new adventure or interesting project, and found ASC to be a perfect way to put some of these skills to use. Angela came out to the Olympic National Forest for the second year in a row to participate in our marten survey project.
Beaver carcass, check! Skunk scent, check! Nails, hammer, wire, saw, shears; check! While I am headed into the backcountry of the Olympic National Forest, I’m definitely not packing from my typical stash of extra lightweight jackets, tents, and sleeping bags. It’s my twelfth winter trip up here in the last two years, maintaining two camera sites each winter. While I am generally anything but a creature of habit in the outdoors, always seeking trails and summits to add to my ever-growing list of new places to see, I actually have come to enjoy returning to the same place.
