Photos: R-Rated Tree, & Bald Eagle Sighting on Trail
While performing trail construction on Monday's MLK holiday, I spotted a total of 3 bald eagles at WyCo Lake Park. I could barely get close enough to one of them to snap this far-off digital photo, though. They appeared to be having fun while fishing. They would swoop down to the surface of the lake and grab a big-ass fish with their talons, then fly off and eat it from the top of a sycamore or oak tree. The year-round geese and ducks did not appear to enjoy their presence, though. I have'nt seen this much bald eagle action since I moved here from Spokane, Washington 9-1/2 years ago.
The other photo is of a tree in the middle of the woods near our new singletrack section. It has a vine growing through its crotch. Bizarre!!!
I find ways to enjoy life as much as I can. Also, life's too short to treat people poorly.
I'm into long runs in the park, consuming salt, popping blisters,
eating roadkill & tree bark, and burying whiners in shallow, unmarked
graves. I also enjoy designing trail race courses that would make the
Marquis de Sade blush.
A fun time for me would include banging muddy shoes together, setting
broken bones with a machinist's vise, and duct-taping-down any part of my
body that is bleeding or just flopping-about uselessly.
What helps me to be an active trailrunner and grandpa?
1) Daily sponge baths with bovine stem cells;
2) Copious amounts of delicious & nutritious homebrewed beer; and
3) My secret elixir...Bicarbonate of Figleaf.
