This morning I drove over to Presque Isle, on Lake Erie, in search of snowy owls. There was 1-2ft of snow on part of the route up to Gull Point, which is where I'd spotted them in the past, so I strapped on my snowshoes for the short 3mi (round-trip) hike. It was beautiful, with lots of virgin snow and cool ice sculptures, but no sign of snowy owls. I confess I didn't spend a whole lot of time at Gull Point because the windswept open terrain was cold and inhospitable. I consoled myself by stopping at a few of the viewpoints beside the road to photograph the antics of some seagulls.
