The beak and the stick

I decided several days ago that I'd go to Langus Riverfront and Spencer Island today. Last time I was there, several areas were flooded, and I was curious to see if it had all been cleaned up. Everything looks great, and I walked the longest version of my route there. It was foggy and beautiful, but the sewage treatment plant smell was quite strong today. I could smell it on myself until I got home and showered, and I still keep thinking I smell it once in a while, ten hours later. Oof.



It was creepy and beautiful when I got there. I had lots of encounters with flocks of geese going by, but was never able to get them on camera.

This area looked like a lake last time.

Today was the first time I really noticed all these little pathlets off the hunting trail. They're not quite enough for a person to walk off, but they're surely how hunting dogs get down into the water to get geese and ducks that are shot down.

I bet the sunrise was pretty nice from downtown, but it was a little muted down in fogtown.

The effect was neat once it was up, though.

This is one of my favorite pictures that I've taken in a while.

I've never seen it so green over there. But then again, I've never been there a few weeks after it was completely flooded.

Today's the first time I ever saw a rabbit in there, and I saw two! Only got a picture of one, though. Also saw a dead mole on the trail, no picture necessary.

I only used about half the photos I took here, so as usual, click over to flickr if you'd like to see more.
