Cascade River State Park, photodump #1! With some guest photos from J, who was generously tolerating my shenanigans. (He took the last 2.)
It rained the first two days and was brisk even when sunny, but that’s the usual scene on the superior north shore. It was absolutely beautiful, rain or not, and I had so many bird moments that I will need to draw! Highlights included several bold American redstarts, wood thrushes and white throated sparrows singing, ravens, and the excitement of being mere feet away from a pair of golden crowned kinglets hunting moths in the fir trees and feeding them to their precious fluff child nearby. (One of them dive-bombed J!!!)
Photos have captions for the curious. More to come!
Back from Cascade River State Park, and this is one of many awesome cascades on the river. It’s impossible to get a real sense of scale and presence, but hopefully this gives you an idea of how beautiful this place is.
