Eagles, Pelicans, and Puffballs at Saunders Lake

Twelve hikers came out for another amazing hike at Saunders lake.
There were a number of pelicans on the lake, as well as lots of ducks and a few hawks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then we saw a bald eagle, coming…going…and just sitting on a tree overlooking the lake. (We had seen two eagles there when we scouted on Thursday.) Dustin took this amazing photograph.

Scott found a massive puffball mushroom. We got all but three left feet in this photo.

We saw a few hawks as well, and of course, lots of ducks.
Lunch was in the shade on the road allowance at A33. There was a breeze for most of the hike while the sky remained fairly hazy. Temperature-wise it was quite pleasant.
