Such a rainy and windy day we had out on the forest roads today, but it didn’t stop us from getting outdoors! Actually, I personally love this weather, but it’s not for everybody.
The highlight of the day was when a Barred Owl flew silently past us and landed on a tree limb just off the road. I love owls, and we rarely see them during a hike. The eeriest thing about them is when they fly past you without making any noise whatsoever!
This owl wasn’t particularly afraid of us, and kept us company, until we had our fill of taking photos. That blank stare towards us is a bit creepy, but at least we were not on the menu. haha
