Early Morning Ride on Rutter Parkway to Nine Mile Dam

I got up early (for a Saturday), put my camera in the pannier and took a leisurely ride on Rutter Parkway traveling alongside the Little Spokane River.

What a treat to have a natural resource like this so close to home.

It was a cool, quiet ride. Saw some wild turkeys with their young.

And while I was checking out the turkeys a chipmunk came out to have a look at me.

I rode on to Nine Mile Dam where several ospreys have nests. Even though I was a good distance away, this one didn't care for my presence.

One the way home I saw a peacock in front of a residence on the parkway. He worked the camera for me a little and then I headed on home.
