I follow our State Park's Facebook page and they have reported a bald eagle sighting. In fact, the eagle comes and goes. When it has been seen I wasn't able to go. I thought today would be perfect. The last report was that it had been seen a few days ago. I asked again at the gate and I was told it was still in the park. I was pumped!
I didn't bring Clyde this time. Thought that would be too much of a distraction plus the eagle was spotted on the other side of the lake which is not for equestrians.
Some vultures....but no eagle :(
We had this side of the park to ourselves. Not a vehicle or person in sight so I left Kaidence off the lease. She stays with me really good and comes the moment I call her.
The sun was getting lower in the sky. I wanted to try one more time to see if the eagle was in the area that had been reported. We loaded up and drove back to the other side of the lake. Still no eagle :(
I decide to take Kaidence on the hiking trails that are on that side of the lake. They lead into what is known as Penitentiary Hollow. This place is well frequented by rock climbers. It's a really neat place. Today there was only one person there and we met them leaving as we were coming.
Kaidence leading the way back up.
I never did see the eagle but I had an awesome time. I'll go back and try again. I would love to not only see one but get a photo of one! On our way home I stop to feed Clyde. As I pull up to the barn I see a large hawk sitting in the top of a tree. I had already put my camera away so I was scrambling. I put my zoom leans on and was trying to focus when.....
Have a good one...I sure did!
