Dawson Creek on Sunday

Sunday morning we went to Dawson Creek.



Can you see them?-----




A juvenile Great Horned Owl and a parent. The weather wasn't great for photos, but it was a treat to see these cool birds!

The Great Horned Owls weren't the only ones with little ones.



This Great Blue Heron was perched in a tree with a nest. We couldn't see anything in the nest though.


The irises around the pond were in full bloom and so pretty. Do you see what I see?-----










Afterwards we drove to my grandparent's place, east of Sandy on the edge of the Mt. Hood National Forest. I'll show you some photos from the visit next time!
