I came across this picture while cleaning my desk just now. It was purchased some years ago on a road trip from California to Alaska when we stopped in Prince Rupert, British Columbia. I was so struck by how awesome and majestic it is. I just HAD to have it.
Then the lady manning the desk told me about the local area it was taken, a place that attracts lots of these noble and beautiful birds:
the city dump.
Oh, reality! You are so ironic sometimes, aren’t you?
