Don wants to take a backpacking trip to his home state of Colorado, while I find myself really missing the monsoons and watching elk and pronghorns in the White Mountains of Arizona. Normally during monsoon season in Arizona, the national forests start opening up areas closed down due to wildfire danger. We are going to take a break for about 2 weeks before heading out into to the wilderness again.
The following are just a few of the photos I took of the Delta the past couple of months! Nothing but peace and serenity as far as the eye can see! I am so lucky Don loves exploring the wilderness and watching wildlife as much as I do.
Nothing more enjoyable than exploring the winding waterways of the Delta. This is the only boat we spotted during the last couple of months, and I was joking with Don about making sure we were practicing "Social Distancing" ! LOL!
Really enjoyed watching the arrival of the swans almost every evening to the quiet little lagoon near our island.
Quiet Waters! Views I never get tired of looking at!
Kept waiting for this Canadian Goose to take wing so that I could get a shot of him/her just taking off.
During our explorations we came across an island that was absolutely covered by ivy like plants! Fascinating!
A study in patience! Had an awesome time watching this Heron hunting small fish among the reeds.
Going to be really busy the next couple of weeks! Got to make an appointment with our vet to make sure our dogs are up on their vaccines before taking them to another state. Also need to totally clean our large fish tank, and let it go through the nitrogen cycle before restocking it in the fall. Will try to post more later before we go on our backpacking trip.
