The weather was not cooperative during our visit to Fort Stevens State Park today, but the Snowy Owls were! We found three of them in an opening behind the stand of shore pine north of the parking lot at the south jetty. We also saw a fourth owl perched, a long way away in the dunes near the beach. Mid-calf-high waterproof boots are necessary if you want to keep your feet dry.
The green arrow shows the location of the opening in the shore pine where we found and photographed the owls. Driving directions to this location are available by clicking on the green arrow.
Below are two pictures of the area that we snapped as we were leaving. They don't do justice to the raining conditions.
