When I visited last week, there was not a lot of water. I so hope that has changed a bit by now. I have my suspicions that water is being diverted from portions of the Wetlands targeted for destruction to build the SLT. I know it has been a dry, hot summer, but it has never looked like this.

I always enjoy my early morning walks at the wetlands, but Friday was particularly nice as the sunrise was so extraordinary. I love watching the blackbirds and grackles gathering en masse, gradually spreading out across the fields as the sun comes up. Click on pictures to enlarge.
I started around 6:00 AM and the fog was so heavy that I considered turning back. It was a bit creepy, but I’m glad I kept going as the fog didn’t last long. I saw several little blue herons, great egrets, great blue herons, and one fascinating coyote. Click on pictures to enlarge.
It was not the best light for pictures today, but a very pleasant walk–including meeting a couple of fun, friendly dogs, a large husky who shook out his wet fur all over the camera and the pit bull who gave me a muddy handshake. Click on pictures to enlarge.
