Lone Elk Park, and Forest Park, 090213

After visiting the temple, Anjana acceded to my request to drive through Lone Elk Park (more than that was not possible, given a 12-day-old baby in the car, and the cold weather), and it was a good drive…as we were able to see

The Elk calves were, like all babies, very cute:

We passed several Bison, in the age-old landscape:

I then got off at Forest Park, to see Charles and Sarah, the

GREAT HORNED OWLS

I watched both of them for a while, along with Mark, Brenda and others. The owls have, apparently, stashed some food in a hollow in this tree…

Mark showed me a ceramic replica of an owl’s egg:

I walked back in the dark, well satisfied with the day!
