Get Thee to the Woods, Vol. 29: Caledon Natural Area, Virginia
Yesterday Curly, Moe, and I dropped Larry off at Teen Adventure Camp, and headed to Caledon State Park to do a little hiking and picnicking, and hopefully see some bald eagles. During the summer months, Caledon has quite a large population of them, one of the largest on the East Coast, in fact.
We headed down the fire road toward the Potomac River.
We spotted several deer bounding across the trail, but they were too fast for me to get any photos of them.
The boys enjoyed watching the tadpoles in the marsh near the shoreline.
Even the immature bald eagles are magnificent, aren't they?
On the way back
we stopped and had a snack.
There is much more to see and explore at Caledon; the boys are eager to return soon.
Larry, meanwhile, had a fantastic day hiking and canoeing with his friends at camp. We were all sweaty and tired after our adventures.
Today Larry is tubing on the river. That sounds like a lot more fun than laundry and errands and housework, which is what I'm looking forward to today.
