Eagle Watching and Road Riding

eagle1 eagle2 eagle3 eagle4It was a beautiful day, the kind that makes you think that maybe Spring has finally come.  Shauna and I went to a spot that Eli had told me I’d find an eagle nest.  His directions were rather simple, turn on this road and you’ll see it he said.  He was right, you couldn’t miss this nest, it’s huge.  We walked all around and took some pictures of the bald eagle in the nest then were greeted by her mate who flew in to challenge us with an assortment of angry calls and territorial behavior.  When we retreated back he flew off.

I never realized how big these birds are and how big their nests could be.

This afternoon Tom and I got in a 40 mile road ride including Williams Hill, it was a lung busting effort as we gave it 100%   I was toast at the top.  Looks like a week of fantastic weather coming up and lots of opportunities to ride.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
