Bald eagle encounter

ENTS- Last October, my buddy and I decided to make one last trip North to our cabin in central Ontario. We arrived on a bright, clear, but very CRISP morning(22F), and that is how the weather remained for most of the trip. We were the only people on a good-sized lake, and the solitude was much appre...
