Eagles at Red Rock dam

It was great to be out with the eagles below Red Rock dam. I have a new Panasonic FZ28 with 26x optical zoom, I'm always looking for that perfect eagle pic. Howell Station recreation area is all closed off, but the river had just a little ice and I was able to paddle to the west shore to approach the eagles.

It looks like Pleasant Hill is putting in a breakwater upstream of the boat ramp, lots of trucks going in and out. The ice is in the river at Pleasant Hill.

The river was open at Hartford, but full of ice. Below Red Rock is open. Sycamore was iced in, we may have to go south to Red Rock for New Years.
