Glad to hear you made it ok out there Don. Sounds like air travel was an adventure as it always is. Look forward to seeing some of your images and hearing more about your trip! As for me, got wind of Northern Gannet colony down by Fort de Soto so I shot down there for a weekend for some awesome closeups! Errr....ok maybe not! Had to try and freak you out for a brief second. Not much going on up here in Ohio. Send some bears our way!
