We had a nice ride on Saturday - and then this happened. Sunday morning the sun was out - bright and clear - so how could we not take another ride? So off we went - travelling the quieter roads, heading north, just to see what we could find.
A pair of Bald Eagles sitting together near their nest
Mt. Baker with new snowfall.
My favorite tree - look closely at the lower left of the tree.
A Red Tail Hawk sitting on a branch - and some snow still on the ground from last week's snowstorm
Pussy Willows are beginning to pop - can spring be far behind?
In some areas there was a lot of snow on the ground - as in these commercial raspberry fields in front of The Sisters (Washington state Sisters, not Oregon Sisters). We had never seen this magnificent view of the Sisters before - usually we see them from 15 miles south of Bellingham, and this is about 15 miles north.
Trumpeter Swans were everywhere - flying, flapping and feeding
Swans in a muddy corn field - great reflections
