Musings on genre writing, waterfall wandering, and peak bagging in the South's wilderness areas.

I took Carole and Andy to Mountain Island Lake today so that they could go kayaking. I didn't feel like kayaking because it was just way the hell too hot and humid for that. So I drove over to a nearby wildlife refuge to see if I could spot some birds. They are trying to restore a native grassland there and you're not supposed to cross into it. They have a viewing area that you are to use to try to photograph wildlife. While I was on the viewing overlook I noticed two guys hiking around the wetland portion of the restoration project. Probably they were not supposed to be there. I had my telephoto lens on the camera and was taking photos of the area and they wandered into the shots. When I cropped one of the shots I saw that they had noticed me taking photos that obviously included them. They did not look happy.
