I love sandhill cranes…
Yesterday we traveled to Crex Meadows near Grantsburg, Wisconsin to see the sandhill cranes during their fall migration south.
I had never been to Crex Meadows before.
I was a little worried that we might be too late to see them this fall, but they were still active in the fields around Crex Meadows and we saw a few in the marshes as well.
I don’t know why these cranes fascinate me so much.
Every time I see and hear them I am filled with pure undiluted joy!
I don’t need to understand why they bring me joy. I am grateful for the opportunity to see and hear them in their natural habitat.
Under the gray skies yesterday Crex Meadows was stark and beautiful.
When was the last time you made time to do something that brings you joy?
May you walk in beauty.
