Pictures of the Heron that I've been seeing on my runs

Herons are waders, and I got pictures this morning of him wading in the Jordan River. When I saw him before, he was standing on the dead branch that was sticking out of the water. I hoped he would wade to the branch and stand on it, but he flew away. Click a picture for a larger image.

Beautiful bird...and a great place to run. No wonder you are inspired!

I've been fortunate to find running places that are away from automobile traffic and its smog. I really loved to run the back roads in New England. Here in Utah, I ran maintenance roads to irrigation canals for several years, and I'm currently running the Jordan River Parkway. The Jordan River connects Utah Lake (fresh water) with the Great Salt Lake.
