Brenna looking down the hill at the Wabash River
Hiking down the hill to the river.
A boy, a stick and some ice....life's simple pleasures!
Really neat ice formations left after water levels went down.
Saw some fluttering below the ice, broke the ice to find this stonefly that had just emerged. I love these guys, I studied them in grad school. Good water quality indicators!
Brayden wanted a picture of this rock.
As the kids were hoopin' and hollerin', throwing rocks, ice and sticks out on the ice and listening to the cool sounds it made we spotted this in a tree across the river. It's an eagle nest or aerie. We didn't see the eagle at first.
Then it popped it's head up. I can't believe our ruckus didn't scare it away. After we realize it was there we moved on (sort of) quietly. What an exciting find! We see eagles pretty regularly here, but to see it in it's nest was a real treat!
