Bald Eagle Pond Has a New Perch

The massive Cottonwood tree out on the island in Bald Eagle Pond, St Vrain State Park, was toppled sometime over this past year. Now all that remains is the bottom third. Very sad.

While we were camping there this past weekend, a juvenile Crane lighted on top of what’s left of the old tree, sunny and preening herself. This is a very tight crop of an image taken from about 250 yards away, hand-held with my Nikon 200-500 lens.

Lake Marie, Wyoming

I took a slight detour/adventure trip last weekend while camping at Curt Gowdy State Park in Wyoming. I drove about 1.5 hrs West of our camp spot to the top of the Snowy Range pass, to go fish a little alpine lake I remember from a day-trip with my wife Katherine back in the fall of 1996 or 1997.

Nestled near the top of the Snowy Range Pass, just west of Laramie Wyoming, sits these lakes and the picture below is of Lake Marie. Wow. What a scene! Fishing was pretty good too, catching Rainbows and Brookies on a Parachute BWO.

Finally was able to make it out to a sunflower field and I was lucky to have chosen one close by and that was near peak!
