View from Big Wood Lake

The other evening, around 6:30, we and our friends Mike and Diane went for a little boat ride on the lake. It was a bit choppy at first but at a slow pace, it was nice. The colors of the water, sky and shadows on the mountains was incredible. So, these are a few of the snapshots I took. ENJOY:!:
This first picture I took from the lake of our shoreline. We look so small! The second is taken from out in the middle somewhere. Incredible how the sky, mountains and water seem to make their own portrait.

Our first stop was of course, Wood Stream. As we came up to the stream, the lily pads were popping up on the top of the water and just beautiful.

We paddled (well Steve and Mike did, Diane and I just supervised 😆 )into the stream. It is soooo quiet and serene, that you can almost hear your heart beat 😉 This first shot is just as you are entering the stream. From here, you can see the tree that the nest is in. “SHHH, be very quiet” so as to not disturb nature. The second shot is just because I liked the view: the colors, and reflections.

We sat in the stream about 20 minutes quietly just watching the baby eagle in its nest. A missed kodak moment was to see him take a poo 😯 😆 ❗
Paddling out of the stream we turned once more to see the young eagle and to our surprise, 😯 there were 2 of them in the nest ❗ Below is a bad shot of the 2 of them. But we have proof!

I have quite a few more shots from our ride on Big Wood but I do not think my server will appreciate this. Or maybe I should just say that it is best that you come see it for yourself 😉
