I noticed a shadow passing by as it reflected off the cold grey cypress trunks on either side of the creek, and looking up, I wasn’t surprised to see a Black Vulture circling overhead. I checked my pulse and shifted in my seat to make sure this soaring denizen of death knew I was alive! For a brief moment, I imagined I was Frodo Baggins on my way to Mount Doom. Fortunately, Graham Creek is not Mordor, but during winter, it sure does look like a scene from Lord of the Rings!
