Short Ride in the Hill Country

Took a short ride today to see our National bird in his Texas home; was a beautiful day. Started out about 9:00am this morning, the wind was cool and the sun was bright; wildflowers were starting to bloom along the highway. About an 1.5hrs into the ride we came upon the nest (could see it long before the birds,) pulled over and watched them for a while. There were two baby eagles that had just started flying from the nest to some of the neighboring trees. At one point the adult female flew off, and brought back some fish for the young eagles. Was quite a site. Then it was off to have some lunch. was a great day: good friends and a majestic site with the eagles. Will add some pic's later.

Good trip strangeglass. We get to see eagles here too but they are few and far between.
It's been a long time since I've been to the Lone Star State. Thanks for sharing.

I've been thinking about making a little road trip myself to the Hill Country and ride the three sisters. If I decide to do it I may be hitting you guys up for some advice
