It was only the second bald eagle I've seen here, the last one having been about 14 years ago. So it was pretty special to me.

Followed the next morning by the contrail of the Boeing Starliner glowing in the pre-dawn sky. Which isn't a critter, I know, but our skies have been quite interesting this week.

I would be happy to play on tone poles on wilderness courses. Less distraction from the natural beauty.

Yeah, same here. I cut my DG teeth on object courses, but it's been quite awhile since I've played one. Always fun and the last time brought back good memories. Maybe some other NP's will approve tonals in some of the not-so-sensitive areas.

The Corse at lake has a annual Tournament. And it is the only approved course with baskets. Yes you can get into some trouble if you bother the flora or fauna. You can get some spectacular views on the course's and some very Bad lay's like on a soft floating ground that's over a hot pool, or even have your disc land in a fumarole.

There are some places that just shouldn't have disc golf courses.

Was playing a quick 9 at Central AOG DGC tonight and a couple deer were hanging out near basket #4.



The basket for #4 is beside the fairway for #2. I threw my tee shot on #2. After getting to my lie I realized that I had left my putter in the #1 basket. So I left my bag at my lie and went and got my disc. On my way back the deer appeared to be walking towards my bag to check it out. So I stopped and threw my putter on #2 again. The throw ended up about 30' to the right of my bag.

The deer apparently noticed the new throw/disc. As I walked up to my lie the deer moved towards my 2nd throw (pictured below). I got closer and the deer took off... but not until it had checked out my putter. When I picked up my putter it had a wet smear on it. The deer must have checked it out and touched it with its nose, as the ground wasn't wet. I thought that was pretty cool!

A flock of juvenile white ibis has been roaming around the Picnic Island course in the morning for about the last three weeks.

The biggest buck I've seen in years. My backyard "course".
