Eagle Viewing in the Skagit Valley

Z and I just returned from hiking and "camping" in the Skagit River Valley of WA. We saw some of the most beautiful countryside in our gorgeous state. It is almost a rite of passage to view bald eagles here in January, and since Z's class is called the Eagle Clan at Pathfinder, it's only logical that they be part of this very special opportunity to view nature at its finest. We saw a total of 10 bald eagles, including a pair who were "chattering" at each other. Yesterday we hiked up hill on an old logging road, to see stunning scenery of the mountains surrounding the area (near Mt. Baker.) We went on a hike this morning along the Skagit River. It was amazing to spend this time with Z. I'll never forget it!
