The other day my friend, Helen, was in town. Even though it was in the mid-30s with a mix of snow and rain, we decided to go for a hike in the school forest. We parked at the bridge and walked to the Lake Superior bluff at Goebel Beach. We are not yet acclimated to the cold weather, but we dressed properly and had a marvelous hike.
We were around a third of the way when Helen spotted this Barred Owl resting on a low branch around 100 feet to our right. Thanks to my zoom lens I was able to get a photo.
I have not been to this bluff for quite a while. The erosion is unbelievable.
On the way back, the owl was still in the same place.
