Thanks TW.  Only thing missing on that was the new bridge over IA9 and a shot of the palisades across the river from downtown and Phelps Park, and....
Its a fantastic walking trail from the campground (Phelps Park) to the Walmart/Trout Run.  Nearly level all the way.
I was an observer on Pulpit Rock the day they blasted "the cut", and some debris showered us more than a half mile away!
One of these days I'll haul my bike over there and try the whole 12 miles.  For now, I'll drive over to the hatchery and walk the trail down to the nest. :P
Use the talents you possess: for the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except the best.

Thank you, TW.  There is something so peaceful about watching the those Trout Run Trail videos.  I can only imagine what it's like to actually be biking on it.

I have to say that this was one of my all time favorite side splitting ROFLOL moments in chat when we all watched D12 consume the squirrel tail and then managed to stuff down the whole leg too. 

Happy Thanksgiving to all and may we all push back from the table tomorrow feeling as satisfied as D12 on 4/29/2012!

LOL Eaglette, the leg, the tail and all.  That was one way to secure a meal.

Ok all.  Since we're approaching the official season of Winter, I want to share this beautiful video of a Golden Eagle enjoying snowfall. "Storm" is at Pacific Northwest Raptors, another wonderful raptor rehab center located in Duncan, British Columbia.  To really appreciate it, go Full Screen.

In keeping with all of this snowy weather (including our Decorah), I found this short video on Face Book yesterday.  Love, Love, Love those beautiful wings!  I also love the intensity in the Golden Eagle's eyes early on.

This has always been a favorite of mine.  Ducklings leaping from the nest.  I've often wondered if the parent ducks saw to it there would be a pile of leaves under that tree. :)
