More Vacation pics - are you sick of em yet?

These were actually from June 20 and our drive from Glacier to Idaho. We stopped at this dam (sorry, but I can't remember the name of it) on the way. It was tucked back in this little town and we parked and hiked across this quaint little bridge and there it was. The water around this dam was just surging and was actually quite pretty.

We hiked around the area to see what we could find. We saw an Osprey nest up on one of the telephone poles near there. We saw a chipmunk and a really cool looking squirrel. Here is the squirrel. I got some good close up shots of it with my zoom lens. I thought they came out really nice!

Here is the sign that was posted about the Osprey. I thought it was pretty interesting.

This particular osprey picture was one I actually took in Idaho and not one that we saw where this sign was. There was a nest near the dam where this sign was, but it was so high up that I could not get a good look at the bird inside! But, the picture I did get was taken alongside the road in Idaho - alongside a road that lined water. There in the water were all these platforms they had built presumably for the osprey to build their nests upon.

Those are cool squirrel pictures. It is so cute and colorful with a white tummy! Some of the ones that come through our yard are totally black.

I remember crossing over that bridge to get to that neat little area by the dam. You could see between the bridges wooden planks down to the water below. I kinda freaked me out at first. I don't recall, did any of the duck pictures turn out?

That's actually a pretty big dam to be tucked away somewhere. Did you get wet from all the sprays?

You know i have only ever seen one squirrel. On a brief two week visit to New Jersey. It was the most gorgeous thing ever. Squirrels are for Aussies what koalas and kangaroos are for Amreicans. Great shots.
