The Images of Ashala

Nothing new to report today, Sunday, other than throngs of people on the bridge, although not as crowded as usual.   Mama (which is preferred over whale #604) is still swimming in circles under the bridge entertaining young and old alike who venture on the narrow bridge for a look down into the Klamath River to view the Gentle Giant.

Since Mama and her calf were first sighted in the river on June 23rd, 45 days have now passed and she shows no signs of venturing back to the ocean.  The calf has now been gone for 15 days.

Since some blog readers have never seen the calf or known the calf existed, I decided to post some images of the youngster.

  1. Can the calf survive on its own? If the water gets to low, what are the plans for Mama?

    These are beautiful pictures! Thank you for sharing! I will continue to read your blog, but I was wondering if anyone was tracking the calf? I hope he joins the rest of the herd.
