Hawk Walk

I have blogged about Sky Falconry before.  Lori had given me a hawk class for my birthday a couple years ago.  Well last year for Christmas she gave me a Hawk Walk.

We finally had a weekend that we could take advantage of the gift certificate before it expired.

It did mean that we were up, showered and out of the house at 4:45 this morning.  Drove down to Alpine, CA and did the hour and a half walk.  We got to fly the hawk between us and watch him soar close to the ground conserving energy and right through branches in  a tree.

At the end the hawk dispatched of a rat, completely, while the owner tethered him back up.

Once we finished it was only 10:00 a.m. and we were pretty close to San Diego so we went to a cafe for breakfast before driving home.  The rest of the day consisted of laundry and cleaning.  I have very little left in me from being up so early so I will just load up a few of the pictures.

It was an awesome day!
