At The Beach

 The "G" on this sign looked more like a "C". It reminded me of working a recreation program running outdoor ice rinks and each park had all kinds of no signs. Our last day we took tape and changed them all to "KNOW". As college students this seemed so funny.

 Lets wrestle!
 Lily loves to roll in the sand
Daisy still was trusting the ice until later in the week when she wouldn't listen and went through on the edge of some that had thawed.
 Huge oaks line the hilltop, evidence that area had been grazed.






These two were hard to get close to. They are just tiny dots in the next shot. There is a mature and immature eagle together.


Walking in the Valley of the Giants. Huge Cottonwoods four to five foot in diameter lined this river bank, survivors of many spring floods. Some Native American tribes felt your soul went into these trees so they were revered. I always wonder if this is where I might end up when I marvel at these majestic giants.
Reaching for the clouds, but so delicately touching fingertips.
This wetland had a family of foxes in the spring staying here, but it was too soggy to get back to observe them. One would almost need hip waders so as not to sink to deep. It was fun to hear their tiny voices as they played.

  1. We have huge cottonwoods further down river. Since the river flow is controlled the cottonwoods don't get flooded anymore and we're afraid we'll lose them.

  2. It's always good to see dogs having fun. I love taking my dog out with me sometimes more than I like seeing the nature itself.

  4. Lily looks like she's enjoying that sand rolling :) Beautiful blue skies in these shots. It's all gray here and we're buried in snow

  9. I love cottonwoods. The city though has banned them as nuisance trees and all the ones on public property were cut down. They couldn't make landowners cut theirs down so it's been a slow attrition. still, not allowed to plant new ones even on private property.

  11. Assuming these photos were before the snows came, Steve. Looks like everyone was having a good time, except for a wet Lily.
