We got to where it said trail parting and the hubby said, we park here and walk up to the trail. So, we walked and walked and walked. Just around this bend he said, but each bend lead to more road. After a while my stomach started cramping and I got nauseous. We must have walked for 45 min or more from the bottom of the bottom of the mountain to the top where the other hiking trail parking lot was which is just around the corner from Beatty's House. I would like to say the long walk and getting sick to my stomach was worth it.
Notice his colors are just starting to appear.
Lucky for us he came back!
We soon realized that this little guy was a boss!
He would chase larger Hummingbirds away and yell at them without thought to his miniature size.
The whole time he was bossing everyone else around he kept his eye on us.
Look at that white line!
Excited to even get a glimpse of the White-eared we headed back down the mountain to this beautiful sunset.
A Guinea Fowl noisily said goodbye.
The evening bid us farewell with this beautiful sunset display.
We reached the car just after the sun had fallen.
As we drove up the road to where we were staying, my husband abruptly stopped the car. A fluffy Black Bear was right in the road. I rolled down the window and stuck my head and the camera out to get a shot of him, my hubby suddenly hit the gas to get me a better shot and I smacked my head on the window frame and missed my shot. This is where he disappeared into the woods.
