Wild Turkey and a Rainbow


With the heavy deluges of rain lately and lots of work-related meetings consuming my time, I haven’t had much of an opportunity to be on the trail lately.

To whet your appetites for my next adventure, here are a wild turkey and rainbow.

The pretty rainbow was a surprise visitor. I was on a hike on Sauvie Island during a a downpour. Then low-and-behold, for a few moments the sun broke out of the storm clouds.

Soon there was a large gorgeous rainbow dropping into the Columbia River. I couldn’t help thinking about the leprechaun’s pot of gold.

Not long after I was in the Glenwood area north of the Columbia River Gorge. Hiking in a mix of snow and rain, I spotted a group of wild turkeys. The fog was so thick that it was almost as dark as twilight. I had to set my ISO up to 2500 to take photos of the birds. Amazing!
