Pond #2

It is not exactly Walden's Pond, but it is my pond. I have never seen anyone else here and as far as I know, it has no name. Any suggestions? This is where I often retreat to write, think, pray, watch birds, and generally recharge.

I am posting a couple pictures from the BLM area on Stukel Mountain for my Klamath Falls friends. You get to this place from South Poe Valley Road then Webber Road. I park at the bottom of the rocky track and walk 3 miles in and 1200 feet up, then north past the larger pond at the south end of Van Meter Flat.

Above the Fog

Can you guess what is making the steam plume? This photo is actually from last winter. I am standing on the east side of Stukel near the quarry looking northwest to Aspen Butte and Mountain Lakes Wilderness.

Oh for wings like a bird!!

What bird is this?

This photo was taken in my front yard in Klamath Falls on October 13. The closest match I can find is a Verdin, but Oregon is way out of range. Looks like it is in the sparrow/finch family?
