Our friends hung around again this morning, I'll miss them when we leave.
|That is Beluga's front door in the background - do we have peeping toms?|
|Sasha is concerned by all the deer traffic|
We're heading to Bishop, Ca. tomorrow, 4000 ft. lower in elevation, so we should be out of the snow zone. I think we'll still be touched by the storm coming, but it should just give us cooler temps and a few clouds, that we can handle.
We read all morning, ate lunch and then checked out the nearest place to empty our holding tanks and buy diesel fuel for our morning departure. At the gas station we happened to park next to a water tap that was left dripping. It had made a tiny pool below it and
was a mecca for birds drinking and bathing.
Robin, we saw a really new bird for us - a white headed woodpecker! It was siting under the drip, drinking and enjoying the tiny waterfall pouring over its white and red head. Mountain Chickadees, Red Breasted Nuthatches, Black Headed Grosbeaks, and what I think were Cassin's Finches all took patient turns at the water shower and pool. Small pleasures. Until two guys on dirt bikes roared up that is. That ended all our birdwatching, Grrr. Oh well, I guess it was a gas station after all.
Since we're leaving this idyllic spot tomorrow, I wanted to show you some of the beautiful fall colors that surrounded us, this high wind and coming snow may finish them for this year.
See you tomorrow!
