This week I had the good fortune to go out and hunt for ducks on three different days. Both Tuesday and Friday afternoons I headed out to do some jump shooting along the river. Then on Saturday morning I spent a few hours sitting over a popular duck hole. Both evening hunts were very successful I got some great photos of the sun setting and of the cliffs overlooking the river at twilight. It didn’t hurt that there were plenty of widgeons trading up and down the river. Saturday, they were all gone and I was left sitting with my thoughts as the desert came to life. A favorite song of mine kept playing through my head, “desert sky, dream beneath the desert sky” from U2, the song is called In God’s Country. Looking around at where I was, I realized I was in the middle of God’s country. As I meet more and more people through this blog, each one of them has their own individual traits and outlooks on the outdoors. Some are great writers, others phenomenal photographers, some paint or guide. Hunting, fishing, hiking and camping we all try to put down how we feel about our time spent in God’s country. I hope to get to know more people this year and share my perspective on the locations and activities I enjoy. Thank you in advance for sharing yours.
