I found a new road this morning. Marked as a "Minimum Maintenance Road", it says you are traveling at your own risk--it was well worth it

Came upon a young eagle that was eating his catch next to the road--he took off and this was all I got of him by the time I got tha camera out...

There were four of these in a field next to the road--don't know if they are Llamas or Alpaca

The road wound down through the river valley past this meadow of yellow coneflowers

Great shots, Rick! Isn't it great to get off of the beaten path!!! Especially if you have to travel at your own risk:G!! the lighting of the 1st pic is inspirational! the blurred eagle shot is neat also! I'm 99% sure that is a llama. My dad has 4 of them ...they have become a location staple in the small town that he lives in ... "go past the llamas & make a left". Any way, I'm pretty sure alpacas are like a smaller version of a llama. They look the same only everything is on a slighter scale.

Thanks for posting!

Very nice! And truly, they could have been shot anywhere around where I live, it simply looks just like in your pictures here.

Always nice to find a road less traveled. Great shots.

I agree with Jim. He said it for me, too.
