Nearing the remote mountain and ocean beauty of Port Renfrew on Vancouver Island, we were still quite a distance from the village when we drove past this gentleman who had a wonderful healthy and friendly bearing about him.

Wonderful image, Rick. He is a brave soul to be walking alone in cougar country.

He appears unfazed by walking. I believe you have captured his happy personality here.
