Dec. 4, 2014 LaSalle, Tonti, Eagles Clif, Lover's Leap

December 4, 2014 the Walker's Club set off to LaSalle Canyon.  We had 28 hikers and 2 dogs.

See the lone eagle on Leopold island?

With a little zoom, can you see the lone eagle now?

I will leave you with this: Wherever you may hike or walk, just put one foot in front of the other.  It's all about the experience not the destination.
