The Rocky Mountains in Canada have lots of animals that we don’t have in Arizona, and a few that we do have.  We drove around a lot so we had lots of time to look for animals.  We really wanted to see a bear and a moose, but we never saw the moose.  Here is a list of the animals we did see:

  • 1 BLACK bear (not huge but still cool!)
  • 7 Big horn sheep
  • 1 Elk
  • 2 deer
  • 1 Pika (a tiny little rodent only found it here)
  • Pelicans (really giant pelicans in Calgary – they weree along a river where there were salmon we think)
  • Sea gulls (also in Calgary – strange)
  • 1 wild turkey
  • Hawks (a lot of them)
  • Cows (many, many, many cows….)
  • Regular sheep and one “house sheep” named Pippy (see picture)
  • alpacas (they are SO cute and I want one and my mom said we can see if Phoenix allows us to have them when we get back!)
  • chick`a` munks (as I call them) or chippy munkos (what Tessa calls them)
  • black squirrels
  • Horses
  • Thaylee (pretty fluffyhouse cat at couchsurfer’s)

 And that is all for now!

I really missed you at the fist day of school. Tell Tessa that we were picking out notebooks and I got hers. Looks like you are in the school of the world. You are soooo lucky! Isabel
