Eagle Cliff

On Saturday as I was coming home Miles Cemetery caught my eye more than usual because someone had burned the small hill prairie in front of the mausoleum. The burning helps maintain the grassland in an area that would likely revert to trees if not burned.  The evergreens are cedars.  If you click and enlarge, you will see two people standing in front of the mausoleum. Click the Link for Miles Cemetery Facebook page. This area was called Eagle Cliff by the early settlers because of the eagles nesting there. It happened that I was able to photograph an Eagle on her nest less than a quarter mile from the cliff. The nest has been there for several years.  It is less than a hundred yards from a very busy road.
