Remarks & Notes 
Foreshadowing of things to come? Is it so bad the vultures are circling UP? Probably not, but this bird might make some worry like the Snows of Kilimanjaro. Kinda cool when you can combine two hobbies, ultralight flying and railroad photography. I guess it would be, but I prefer the safety of the ground and this image was taken securely perched at the Rowena overlook high above the Columbia River.
