Re: Hammock Camping hammocking on the beach!
- But I've heard that there is the potential to see the Northern Lights
from Washington. If so, that would make my year.
I've actually seen eagles flying in flocks in Northern Illinois. It
was 2 or 3 years ago and the upper midwest had an unusually cold
December with lots of below zero days. This resulted in the river
freezing over North of Lock and Dam 15 (the Quad Cities). So, all
the eagles were forced south to L&D 15 to fish. The Rock river dumps
into the Mississippi there and the eagles were fishing below the dams
in both rivers. As you drove across the bridges, you could count
over a dozen golden and bald eagles sitting in the trees. One
afternoon I happened to glance up and saw a flock of about 20 eagles
flying from the Rock to the Mississippi. Since they don't normally
congregate in those numbers, it was quit a sight!
Little things make me happy.
