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.
