Well, I thought I was going to bring you a video. I finally got my act together and got new conversion software that didn't cost too much. And I thought I had a free movie maker program. Spent 2 hours, and put together a decent vid for a first go with it.
Then, when I exported it, I found out it's free to use, but if you want to export the video it has a big stripe of a watermark across the entire middle unless you pay money. (See steam coming out of ears).
So, I'm going to keep working on that issue. Will have to remake the video in another program.
My goal today was to hike to Dead Horse Marsh. It has filled with water this year. Third time I've ever seen it this way.
The video tomorrow will tell you more about it. Now I'm just trying to do a fast post.
It's fed by this little spring, believe it or not.
There are other areas on the trail that aren't usually wet too. I don't think I've ever seen a pool here before.
The Trailing Arbutus is trying to flower!
I saw two sandhill cranes and several ducks, smelled a skunk, and heard a barred owl in the middle of the day.
No other news: I was out all day (well, I tried to shoot some video footage for another project while I was out there. We'll see how that turns out!)
And now... I'm tired. I admit it. Tomorrow is another day.
