Adirondack Loon

While visiting friends in the along the Raquette River, we came across a common loon in the distance. We cut the engine of his runabout and watched the loon dive. After 30 - 45 seconds, the loon reappeared close enough to allow for several shots before diving again. I've tried to get these birds before, but they always proved to be too elusive or the lighting was wrong or they were too distant or....whatever. This was one of those opportunities which just adds to the magical nature of the "dacks". My father was born and raised in these mountains and I've always felt an almost spiritual relationship to these mountains. Moments like today's only emphasize these feelings all the more.
