More Cranes

Yesterday we spent the morning in a sales presentation at this resort. That was our price for 4 free nights of full hookup camping. After the presentation we hightailed it back to Whitewater Wash and Sandhill Cranes.

Just after we arrived a massive flight occurred. Thousands of birds took off and flew directly toward us and over our heads. The sound was like an approaching train. The sight was magnificant. I got a video, but it will take some time to edit to a postable length. In the mean time I have a few pictures from the balance of our after noon. We stayed until the sun set and the temps dropped into the 30’s.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    Oh you lucky dogs! I’ve always, always wanted to see large numbers of sandhill cranes! Meanwhile down in Yelapa, the temp is improving to Marco’s preferred 69-72 range.
    Cheers, ace
