Like a hawk I have been watching...
for another rain break
for a certain road closed by high water to reopen.
This week both happened
and we (hubby and I) set off towards a certain wetland I had been wanting to visit
since I first heard about it.
When we arrived I was truly blown away by the tranquil scene before us.
It was better than a massage,
better than dark chocolate,
well at least it was better FOR ME than a whole lot of things:)
A lot of the usual feathered friends were there...
(I think he fit in well with the Oriental feel that part of the wetlands has),
(A special thank you to Teresa for reigniting my desire to see these beauties this winter!
BTW, for some amazing close ups of Mirror Lake's tundra swans see Teresa's lovely post on "her" feathered friends here:
The trail around the lake was amazing--
all except for one snake who was definitely NOT hibernating
(being that this blog is a no-snake zone,
I am not posting any of the 3 photos I took of the slithery one)
The trail is mostly flat and only a tiny bit over one mile in length.
Oh, oh DH is up and foraging through the fridge in search of food.
