UFOs

Today I was on my way to my brother and sister-in-law's place in Pleasant Grove. PJ was blessed today. I will post pics from that later. He looked so cute in his outfit.

I had just gotten off the freeway and I noticed a flock of birds circling in the air. They were circling like a bird of prey would over a field. The first thing that came to my mind was condors or vultures, but it didn't last. The only thing I was certain of at this point was that these things were huge. As I got closer, I noticed their coloring - looked like gulls. They were still too far away for my naked eye to identify. I quickly pulled over and whipped out my camera. Oh yeah, I never leave home without it.


Case closed.

They were beautiful. I have never seen so many together so far from the ocean. I think they were organizing their flying formation when I first saw them.

If you want to see a large gathering of sea gulls you can go to the dump. It's amazing.

Thanks Jes. :-P This may be so un-Utahan of me to say, but I HATE seagulls.
