Salem Stitcher and I saw this Heron sunning himslelf on the ice yesterday at Salem Lake. Its almost looks like he is walking on water. He is not the only one grateful for the warmer temperatures. We walked all the way around the lake (about 7 miles). We heard something very loud, almost like laser guns several times....and she finally figured out it was the ice cracking and shifting....it was so cool sounding. I think I could have stepped on the ice near some of the edges it was that thick (but know better). Hope you get out and enjoy the pretty day today!
