Morning Has Broken
Early morning visit to Coyote Lake County Park.
While Mike dropped line in water,
I wandered around observing nature and picking up shoreline litter.
Nature's Altar: a collection of driftwood, rocks, leaf litter.
Morning has broken.
Amid the wonders, discovered a newly emerged monarch butterfly.
Watched as the sun's rays warmed it.
Ever so slowly it unfolded its wings.
Intermittingly extending, beating its wings, gathering strength for the day.
Coyote Lake is very popular with those who fish for sport and for the table.
Practicing "catch and release", take a deep breath and hold it as you remove the fish from
the water. To avoid brain damage to the fish, you must return it to the water as you exhale.
Use the Mendoza Ranch entrance to access a trail or to explore or fish Roop Pond.
Roadside view of barns, out buildings at adjacent Harvey Bear Ranch County Park.
