Looking across the San Luis Valley from Penitente Canyon on a chilly November afternoon. A beautiful place to take a walk and quiet the mind even when the sky is grey. Silence is indeed golden or better yet silent.
you know….snow geese and sandhill cranes working the same grain-field while keeping on the lookout for the wily coyote.
While walking in our local forest we noticed the crows making a ruckus and several were gathered in a tree cawing away. We followed the noise and guess who we found? A fairly young looking Great Horned Owl. He was being kept on a short leash by the crows but it did not see to bother him. More often than not following the crows in these woods leads us to a Great Horned Owl.Poor guys never get a minute of peace.
