On Sunday I went out to Hagg Lake to run the loop. I will be running a 50k in a few weeks and needed to see the course. Hagg Lake is a beautiful area. I could have made much better time but I stopped to watch the bald eagle attempt to grab what appeared to be a small duck. The eagle was determined to get some breakfast but the small duck was faster and smarter than it appeared. It kept ducking under the water evading the eagle’s sharp talons. At one point, the eagle smacked the water so hard, the sound echoed all around the lake. But in the end, the eagle went away empty taloned.
