Woodard Bay Trestle Pano

Woodard BayTrestle Pano web

Washington State’s largest known bat colony is tucked away under this abandoned railroad trestle north of Olympia Washington. Here female Yuma and Little Brown Bats cluster together in the trestle above the waters of Puget Sound. A section of trestle and track was removed so that landlubbers would not disturb the bats.

But they don’t feed here. They fly south each day at dusk about 18 miles to a fresh water estuary; Capitol Lake in downtown Olympia. Amazing.

I’ve not seen the bats myself, at least at this location which
involves about a mile walk along an uneven closed asphalt road, up and
down through a conifer forest timed to arrive a bit before dusk when
the swarm of bats take to the air.  And then you have to retrace your
steps in the dark with a handy flashlight to find your way.

I’ve seen a few isolated bats near dark feeding on flying insects at
the fresh water Capitol Lake.  Once it gets dark, you can’t see them,
but you can hear their echo location chirps as they fly about.

Urk, not my idea of wandering around in the dusk!  Still, to see them
leave the wharf en masse would be a sight almost worth it.

I'm so glad they're protecting that wharf. I love bats! At my last
place of residence, there was a pond that attracted bats. There were
certain places I could stand next to the pond (at nightfall) and feel
the bats whooshing past my head, just inches away. It was magical :-)

Did they build nests in your hair? :~)

I was hoping one would, but I had no takers :-(

We spent a couple of days this week over near Flagstaff at three different national monuments. This is Wupatki pueblo, which dates back about 800-900 years, at Wupatki National Monument. There are several other dwellings in the the area, but this is the biggest. You can actually enter some of the rooms, which gives you a better idea of how these ancient people lived.

I made a few shots where I cropped out the handrail, but I wanted to give an idea of the overall scene, and it was virtually impossible to do that without getting part of the rail in the picture...

The large view gives me a you-are-there feeling. What a fascinating place!

Amazing that the artifacts include cane or reed cigarettes.

Sometimes, I like to just kick back in a beach chair with a bottle of Corona and watch the tide come in. This pano was made at the toe of Budd Inlet, Puget Sound.

Well, I've been known to tug on a little Yukon Jack to get me through
troublesome times, when Corona just isn't enough.

Guinness Stout from the tap, or occasionally splurge on Unibroue La Fin Du Monde OR Unibroue Trois Pistoles, if available.

Nice panoramas, Paddy. I haven't tried this yet..

So it's *not* falling down, after all. I've always suspected as much.
