Sparrow


September of 2008: A road trip over the Cascade Mountains to catch one final blast of summer heat before the rainy season set in over Western Washington. About 10 miles east of Winthrop, Louie and I found a sleepy mountain lodge nestled amongst the sagebrush of the Methow Valley. On a stroll at dusk I came upon a tiny sparrow which had met an untimely death via one of the monstrous picture windows overlooking the lake. Though I wish the circumstances to observe her were quite different, I felt blessed to be given the opportunity to see Mother Nature's handiwork up close and personal.
