It stopped raining for two hours yesterday! The sun even decided to make an appearance, wow! We had heard that the salmon were spawning, and I really wanted to see them, so we went to Headwaters Preserve. The salmon spawn in the Elk River, which runs through the preserve. I was all excited to see 'em, but because of the flooding and excessive rain, the water was really high, so we either couldn't see them or they weren't there. I think they are up at the Mad River also, so maybe we'll try that out next time.
There weren't many birds out ant about today either. The little Golden-crowned Kinglets were doing their usually hyper thing. This picture isn't super sharp, but I love how they look face-on with their little goofy frowns. They look so perturbed, it's cute every time.
The salmon were a bust, but it was still nice to actually get out for a couple hours. Having been in the tropics, in the sun and outside for more than 2 weeks straight, and then coming back here, where it hasn't stopped raining at all has been a difficult transition!
