Moose Fencing nearing completion in the Gallants area.
Shot a few pics of the Moose Fencing in that area yesterday.

A provincial pilot program testing the effectiveness of wildlife fencing and warning systems in reducing the number of moose-vehicle collisions on provincial highways will place the fencing along the Trans-Canada Highway (TCH) in western Newfoundland.
A total of 15 kilometres of fencing is expected to go up. According to a provincial government tender, it will be installed on the TCH in the area adjacent to Gallants and Black Duck Siding.

My Moose this Season.

I wonder if this is just a waste of money to please a certain Group rather then explore other options?

A Webcam.

Thought I would share this today.
A new webcam installed on top of Kala Patthar, at the height of 5,600 meters (3.480 miles), will now allow anyone with a PC of high resolution to watch live images of the world's tallest peak Mount Everest. This is the first webcam installed at the vicinity. The image is updated every few minutes, and one can also see the movements of clouds around the mountain.

The camera has been installed by Italian and Nepalese technicians coordinated by Cabbage Giampietro. The Mount Everest webcam was installed under the 2011 Share Everest expedition to restore the world's highest weather station.
