Bald Eagles-1/26/11

Spotted a couple Bald Eagles on the way back to Cedar Rapids 
around the Iowa River Basin at the Amanas.

The second one was up high in a tree across from the 
other Eagle.

Back across the road for a couple more before 
heading home.

Cardinal on tree limb

My wife pointed me to a Cardinal outside our living room window. Grabbed the camera and got this. Love these beautiful birds; they are my favorite species.

Decorating the Christmas tree

The finished tree.

Chase of the CRIC01(Cedar Rapids-Iowa City)
turn. This day, Rock Island heritage unit 513 was leading.
The train topping Walford Hill.

CRIC01 topping East Yocum.

CRIC01 crossing the Iowa River in Iowa City as a flock of seagulls
fly around.

The kids decorated a Gingerbread house. A few days later,
it was eaten.

Christmas morning 2010
The kids opening their presents.

Overnight, frozen fog developed and gave us a beautiful
sight; a bona-fide winter wonderland.
