The Perfect Day
Subject: Bald Eagle flying over Pine Creek Dimensions (inches): 23 x 32 Description: One of our favorite activities on a nice day is to ride our bikes on the rails to trails path that snakes through the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon along Pine Creek. This particular day we rode from Blackwell to Slate Run and ate lunch on the deck of the Hotel Manor overlooking Pine Creek. We observed blue heron in a couple of places on our ride south and got to watch an osprey for a while as we ate our lunch. Then we noticed an eagle feeding on a fish on top of a rock about 50 yards up stream. As we carefully walked up the edge of Pine Creek to get a closer look and a picture, the eagle took off and flew right by us. My wife, Holly, is like a gunslinger with her camera and got a great shot. I decided to use a background inspired by these trees we saw reflecting in the water a mile or two up stream. As we were riding our bikes back north to Blackwell, I turned to Holly and said, 'What a great day this has been. The weather is perfect, the leaves are at their peak, and about the only thing we haven't seen today is a bear.' As we rounded the next curve, there was a black bear in the middle of the bike path. It truly was the perfect day.
