Old Men Rock – II

Hello friends of Rocky Mountain Escape,
We wish for you, especially for our American friends, a happy 4th of July.  We have a special treat for this day.

Usually our resident bald eagles will sit in the tree tops overlooking the lake as they await their favourite fish to pass by, for lunch or dinner.  However, sensing the special social nature of these days, and with the pride of Independence Day beating in their breasts, they gave us a special greeting. 🙂  You can see here, Kris out canoeing and one of the eagles who came to sit near us along the shore of Rock Lake.

Ray said to me as he headed out on the trail,  “I know I won’t be able, to do this much longer. But I will keep on hiking the Wilmore Wilderness for as long as I am able.”
