Doug and Donna are training on Glendora Mountain Road for their upcoming adventure on the Bitterroot 300K loop. This amazing four day journey in the Pacific Northwest along the Trail of the Couer D'Alanes and the Route of Hiwatha promises cooler temperatures and greener surroundings. The Friends of the Trails have a nice write up of the itinerary
Doug took these photos of a peacock foraging along Glendora Mountain Road just past mile marker 10.49. Definitely the highlight of the day.
My bird encounter of the day happened as I was on my way down. The shadow of a four foot wing span silently crossed the road and caught my attention. Matt pointed out the eagle a few minutes later silently floating on the air currents overhead.
