Very Foggy at the Cosumnes Preserve, 12-11-18

It was foggy and cold most of the day, about 41° in the morning, and in the 50’s by the late afternoon.  I headed over to the Cosumnes River Preserve for a walk even though Wilson was hurting a bit. It was super foggy out there, so it was nearly impossible to see any birds, but I figured I might be able to get some scenery and spiderweb shots.  I was happy to see that the preserve that put metal skid-strips all along the wooden boardwalk to the river trail. That boardwalk could get really slippery when it was wet or icy; the strips will help to cut down on slip-and-fall accidents.  I walked a little bit further than I probably should have and was really in pain by the time I got back home about 3 hours later.

Hawks, Fog and Deer, 12-08-18

I got up around 7:00 am and headed over to the Effie Yeaw Nature Preserve again for a walk.  It was chilly, around 39°, and foggy at the river when I got there and remained cool and overcast all day.

At the preserve, there were a lot of Red-Shouldered Hawks out and about today, all screeching and calling to one another. I also came across the big 4-pointer buck standing and browsing in one of the small meadows. He just hung around there, being quiet and stately-looking for quite a while so I was able to get a lot of photos of him. I also got one shot of him in the meadow with another hiker walking up, so you can see how close he let people get to him…

I only walked for about 2 ½ hours today and headed back home.
