Bald Eagles at Cache Creek

Hannah and I did a great day hike in the Cache Creek Natural Area yesterday. The hike leaves highway 20 just east of Clearlake Oaks. The trail leads up to the top of a ridge from which you have a great view of the Cache Creek gorge. We were not up on the ridge long before we saw a young bald eagle soar over our heads. We found a nice place to sit and saw about five more bald eagles soaring over the gorge. These eagles use Cache Creek as a resting ground on their migration between Alaska and Mexico. It was a beautiful day. Below is the only decent shot I got at one.
