winter landscapes

I really like the winter landscapes. I like the spindly trees and the open skies, the dried up plants and withered branches.  A couple of weeks a go I took a drive out to the Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge and spent a couple of hours driving the course (you have to stay in your car). I drove slow with the windows down and listened to the birds, frogs, wind and rain. I mostly saw the same wildlife I have seen before: nutrias, hawks, great blue herons, canadian geese, tundra swans and many other birds and ducks. I really love this place. It's a treat any time of year.





Above you can see a red tail hawk in the tree there.

I ended the day in Portland with a warm meal at a Vegetarian Vietnamese restaurant. A wonderful end to an edifying day.
