Country Drive

After all of the rain, sleet, and snow last week Cyn and I drove a quick loop through a local favorite area right out side of town.

Hay Creek is not only a township in Goodhue County, but also a lovely spring-fed trout stream and a day-use recreation area just outside of Red Wing.  I used to fly fish it all the time until the mass blow down of trees along its banks several year back now.  It is extremely hard to walk along and fish in my favorite sections.  There are also countless horse, walking and bike trails through the recreation area (Hay Creek Day – Use Area).

It is a short drive from town to country and sites suitable for capture.  There are usually numerous opportunities to photograph wildlife.  I just missed a bald eagle shredding a trout on the stream bank.  We moved along the road and spent time with some horses.  We also happened upon a native of the area; an old co-worker of mine and his very photogenic sheepdog.
