I did mention that the Weber River was running high didn't I? The hot weather was melting the mountain snow pack very suddenly. As Bernie tried driving to another fishing location, we passed this scene.
And how about this: Those white spots in the first picture were pelicans!
And those are fence posts behind those pelicans!
The pelicans are bobbing along in the middle of a farmer's flooded pasture!
Aww...look how happy they look in their (chose one collective noun: pod, brief, scoop, pouch, squadron)..
Ducks, geese, sea gulls AND pelicans had settled into their newly created "seaside" abode.
There were even Canada geese, but you can see them practically everywhere. Any day now I expect to find a Canada goose sitting next to me at church, or rolling a shopping cart through Costco.
I wouldn't bat an eye if I did.
Anyway, I digress. Back to the pelicans.
Perhaps we should put pelican pictures on our Valentine's Day cards?
