|American Kestrels - nearly everywhere I went on |
|Peregrine Falcon - Wagner Road, Lewis County|
|The rest stop at the north end of Cowlitz - I believe it is always raining here...|
|Barn - Woodland Bottoms - Cowlitz County|
|Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge - Clark County|
|Northern Shoveler - Ridgefield NWR|
This picture I can't really explain, although I'm sure someone knows what this is - the river running through here was completely red. Couldn't really get over to check it out, but it had me puzzled, and I couldn't find anything about it on the Google (the fact that there is a Red River does not help...)
Finished the tour with the American Kestrel below. Same one as the top. It was on the post at the very end of the auto route, and people all stopped to get a good shot of it. Didn't seem to scare it off.
Now I was hungry, and although I had thought to restrict myself to local restaurants... I felt myself pulled in by (in the words of T.S. Spivet - the fictitious 12 year old genius cartographer created by Reif Larsen) "The McAwesome Trident of Desire"
