Here we are at the 4th of June and we finally reached the 20 degree (centigrade) mark. In fact by late afternoon we’d surpassed it as our thermometer read 25.
Had some chores to do so did a little bit of driving around in the local area..
started out by driving along Morris Valley Road…would have been a beautiful morning to be out on the water!
Here is another shot looking back…mountains behind Chilliwack in the distance – still a lot of snow up there!
a quick side trip down to Kilby…this water is seepage caused by the high water table. Lots of Canada Geese in this field. Don’t think we’ve ever seen snow on these local hills in the month of June before, at least not since I’ve lived here.
here is a closer look at some of those grazing geese – no sign of any young ones.
a quick spin around the boat launch parking lot at Kilby…the gray part that is underwater is the boat launch…
on our way home, pulled over to get this picture looking up Harrison River..
and then this Osprey nest which has caused a lot of concern with local residents, fearing it will flood…
there was no sign of any parents…but there does seem to be something in the nest…I’m assuming a baby Osprey…should note that yesterday I watched 3 Osprey and 2 Bald Eagle having a bit of a ‘tussle’ right over head – unfortunately didn’t have a camera with me at the time that would focus on them…needed the DSLR!
One final picture, again looking up the Harrison River…
