  1. Everytime I look at this mountain pic I am in awe with the huge feature standing right in front and I feel myself sitting in the car capturing it. You shared it before and loved it all the time. The bird looks so free !


  2. Terrific. Is this in Sonoma?


  3. Arren’t those mountains amazing! Then that tiny bird flying over the power lines!


    • The Superstition mountains are a geologic wonder. You can see all the layers of the world in them. I love the way the rise up out of nowhere and suddenly, there’s this huge rock and looks like it goes all the way to the center of the earth.

      And of course, the osprey on the way home at sunset … so classic and hopeful … that life continues.

  4. I’m so blessed to live in an area so filled with wildlife. I know where to find eagle sanctuaries along the Columbia & Willamette rivers, Peregrine falcons dive bombing prey over Bonneville Dam or Cormorants sitting next to you on benches along the Pacific coast. I can watch salmon swimming upstream at the dams or witness sea lions fishing for them at the base of the dam. I know where there are piers loaded with wild sea lions smelling horrible as their loud barking disturbs the peace. If you like wildlife Oregon, Washington & California are for you.
