adventures in nature

2016 Jan 03 – Klamath Basin area trip preview

What an absolutely amazing place – the Oregon / Cali border, specifically the Klamath Basin area. I did my own version of a takeover of a National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon the past two days, but it was all peaceful, and I think much more exciting.

One of the especially amazing sites from my trip … just your typical scenario of a coyote and a golden eagle randomly next to each other (story to follow soon):

The quantity and diversity of raptors found in this one area during the winter is astounding!

Happy New Year – more pictures and details on this trip coming soon …
