As the trail emerges from the drenched forest, white waterfowl soar across the cloud-pocked sky, chests puffed out and feet pointed neatly behind them. It reminds me of riding my bike a few days ago. A huge gray crane startled me when it soared into my peripheral vision. He hung there just a few feet away, abeam my head for some moments, matching my speed as he sized me up and I stared back, wide-eyed.
