I was walking yesterday around the
Lafayette Reservoir when a little girl pointed to something she saw
in the trees to her father. It turned out to be a beautiful Great
Blue Heron sitting in a tree looking for something to eat most likely.
What a treat! I love seeing these majestic birds! BTW, the
reservoir also hosts the a lot
white pelicans from Salt Lake this time of year.

Scientist John Muir preferred black and white photographs to paintings of
Yosemite, but these paintings mostly by
Bierstadt are gorgeous.
