There are so many eagles in Alaska, but this great creature watched me as I watched him and then, WOW! When he took flight he looked back as if to say, “Now pay attention. Notice my feathers. Check out my talons. I’m doing this show just for you.” And what a show he provided!
The grandeur of the Alaskan mountains dwarf and humble us. The views are so very, very expansive. They are a challenge to comprehend, but I’m certainly grateful that I got the chance to try. And I hope for you that you will have the experience of watching an eagle such as this one ascend to his playground in the sky.
I merely have to look at this photo to be reminded of the magnificence of this moment. It makes my mind soar--- on eagle’s wings!
