Pre-Cinco de Mayo | GGs TOT

Grout Creek Falls | Fawnskin

So, this week’s TOT was preempted by the day trip desert adventures but, as promised, here is the news–although Post Master Mike says not much has been happening around these parts–things are brewing.

But first…

Jack was still on the nest tree when I returned. Which I personally feel better about because he is sure hard to keep track of when he is out flying around the forest.

One of the neighbors got to see one of the adults scoop up a trout for dinner one night on the way to the Post Office while another called in all the dead trout to the unconcerned agencies.

The creek has been rising and falling and many get stranded or are too tired to continue. I watched one get stuck, rest, and then barely make it back into the stream.

Sad as it seems, it is nature’s way. And although I’ve seen a few owners creek side allowing their dogs to harass the fish, I haven’t personally seen any grab them and drag live trout out.

Okay, now that I got that super-duper important update to ya…time for the sorta news.
