Twin Peaks: Snoqualmie

Tree-hugging hippie nature moment

In the midst of epidemics, wars, and other human nonsense, it's nice to see, well, nature doing its thing with complete disregard for the human race's tomfoolery. :) I was driving out of the office to go grab some lunch, and traffic was completely stopped in both directions. As I slowed, I quickly found out why, and smiled: two mother ducks were leading a troop of ducklings behind them, across the road, and all the cars had stopped to let them pass. The little fuzzy ducklings were cute, but the whole gesture was just nice to see.
