That is neat. I have never seen anything like that.

You will love the book, check out the used bookstore, if you have one, first.

A couple from today's hike around Poway Lake.
This is an osprey. The lake was recently stocked with trout, so I imagine it was keeping an eye on the lake for its next meal.


And, it was really foggy down on the lake, but it didn't stop the fishermen from trying to catch all those trout.

At $58 for a used paperback...I'm going to have to pass, but if I ever find it at a reasonable price, I will get it.
