|A Few Clouds, But Generally Bright|
|Now these Cumulus are building and Darkening.|
Starting off it was a bright day with a few clouds, but as the day went on the clouds built up and darkened, a hint of the next few days when we actually had a rain storm warning. But we're going to continue because we've got cabin fever, and a fair distance to cover along side the west side of the river on the abandoned rail track.
|The upper river.|
|Male Purple Finch|
|Female Hairy Woodpecker|
We were not about to leave without a fairwell to our crow. By the way the river scene is from the upper river just indicating the lack of ice. We won't be going that way today. We'll cut across an active track and use a RR maintenance road which is always good for something and sometimes a bear. This time we got the Purple Finch and the female Hairy Woodpecker, not a bad beginning. After them the trail went quiet and I thought bear, but Boom didn't pick up a scent at all.
|Canada Geese In Flight|
|Geese in Flight|
As the river was coming in sight these Canada Geese came tearing in honking all the time.
