A Special Guest on My Home Trail

The goal of this morning’s hike on the Lake Alma Trail was to pick up a couple of trashy spots I’d noticed on my last couple of walks. I never expected to be greeted by a bald eagle as Hiker-dog and I began at the west end of the dam.

I rarely attempt photos of birds, especially in flight, but I couldn’t resist.  Watching this bird was an early morning thrill.

Even my “home trail” holds surprises and visual treasure if I pay attention and watch for the beauty.
