The Kolden Report: Camp and Canoe - Evening Paradise, August, 25, 2012

Hi, kids!
After watching the snake and toad episode, we were ready for a boat trip. 

Distant storm clouds made me wonder if we'd get rain at home?  (We did...)
 Awash in soft light.

Silver sparkles.
Layers of light.

And yet another...dragon fly parking place.

Gentle waves.

Golden hour.

Where ya' headed, skyriders?

Hoodoos. 

Pelican parking place.

Nervous take-off.

Neat feet.

Feather perfection.

When landing, the flaps are lowered (webbed feet).

Home away from home. 

Evening glory.

Moon shadow...and a few faint stars.
Up next:  The road home.

Surely there is something in the unruffled calm of nature that overawes our little anxieties and doubts; the sight of the deep-blue sky and the clustering stars above seems to impart a quiet to the mind.-Jonathan Edwards
