Látrabjarg puffin

Látrabjarg puffin

Látrabjarg, Iceland is not easy to get to. The drive is beautiful, but the road is pretty bad, at times, and by the time I arrived I wasn’t feeling so hot. Winds were crazy strong, maybe varying between 20 and 50 MPH. Everyone wanted to see the puffins, and other birds, but it was very dangerous as the wind was blowing in the direction of blasting people off the cliff. To get anywhere near the edge you had to crawl on your hands and knees. Even then you couldn’t see any puffins, but you could see thousands of other birds.

Most people gave up on the puffins and headed back to their cars. I sat down on a spot no one was around and just soaked it all in for a while. Then this little guy or gal showed up. Not far from me, this puffin put on a show like a paid model. I have probably a hundred photos, each with a different pose.

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today’s photo comes from four years ago. These critically endangered Hawksbill turtles were chilling on the Punalu’u Black Sand Beach on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Lower South Falls in Silver Falls State Park

Lower South Falls (a waterfall you can walk behind!)

We just got back from spending a couple nights in Portland during spring break. On our way there we went to Silver Falls State Park. The forecast was for rain so the place was empty. The bit of rain that was falling when we arrived stopped so we decided to do part of the Trail of Ten Falls. We did the 6-mile loop section that includes seven of the falls. Two miles into our hike the rain started again, became really heavy, turned to hail, and we proceeded to become drenched. The last few miles weren’t so much fun at the time, but looking back it was a really good time.
