Chapter 10: A Sudden Storm

Today we are supposed to lift off to our final destination, but we can't! The soft snowflakes keep falling and falling. The only thing left to do is eating, and keep eating! So far, two feet of snow have built up in places. It's actually quite beautiful. Finally the snow stops in the late afternoon. A good strong wind arrives from the east. I lift off with the flock and head toward the breeding grounds where I am going to raise chicks of my own. I think about the cycles in nature and how miraculous they are. Off we go… I hope I find Jorge up in the breeding grounds. I have a lot of news to share with him!

Maya begins her journey from Mexico to the Alaska beginning January 1, 2002. Return to the web site then to follow her in her amazing migration north!!!
