  1. Aug 6, 2006 #1
    for about an hour this morning i had this whole mountain to myself.
    i went up there to get some pics of the sunrise but there was also a huge crowd of ravens flying around. they make the coolest squawking & popping noises.
    + all i could hear (at that time anyway) was the sound of their wings flapping & roosters crowing way down in the valley below. :approve: :biggrin:

    I've never scrolled this far to reply to a post, but I think it was worth it. :biggrin:

    Beautiful! Thanks for sharing. What pretty bunnies. Were they really gray or is that just the morning light ?

    Ummm, because it's there. :uhh:

    Why did the chicken cross the road? :rofl: Jk.

    Cool pictures! :cool: Very nice, too! It's on my list of places to go.

    If you mean to the right - yeah.

    I didn't realize the second and third pics were panoramas until I tried to find the quote button. WOW!

    Astro, haven't you learned by now that obscure trivia doesn't make for a good joke with any but the obscure trivialist?

    Ok, I'm really trying to figure out where these pictures are taken from.

    It's obviously south Vancouver Island, but where exactly I'm not sure.
