Nice spring break! Now back to acting like a college student...

It was quite a week, first the spotted towhee blessed me with a pose or three, however the very first shot of it, when it first arrived is much more obscure:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A little later in the day, Tuesday, I wandered up to the football stadium to see how things have progressed, and discovered this ironworker, up high on the beams...

I had planned on making it up to Steptoe on Wednesday, but put that adventure off to Thursday.  Instead I wandered over to the nearby quarry to, once again, attempt to capture some launching canadians.  They were there, they did launch, I was out of position, so instead had to settle for this shot of one of them landing high in the embankment:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, come Thursday, I did make it to Steptoe... what a morning it was

And one of my favorite subjects, the first at Steptoe in time to say "good-bye"

and out on the Palouse, down Steptoe Canyon just above the Snake River, in time to say "Get lost!"
