Lone Elk Park, and the Great Horned Owls at Forest Park,090213

February 13, 2013

After visiting the temple, Anjana acceded to my request to drive through Lone Elk Park (more than that was not possible, given a 12-day-old baby in the car, and the cold weather), and it was a good drive…as we were able to see

The owls have, apparently, stashed some food in a hollow in this tree... sarah 090213 stl photo DSC00660-1.jpg Mark showed me a ceramic replica of an owl's egg: ceramic egg 090213 stl photo DSC00650.jpg

I walked back in the dark, well satisfied with the day!
