Ten people came out to hike Saunders Lake starting from the north end. The air was pleasantly cool and the sky was rather dark at the beginning. However, by mid-day it was warm and the sky was blue with white splashes of wispy clouds.
The fall colours were at their peak. The meadows and trees here are normally very green all through the summer, so it was a surprise and a delight to see the intensity and range of reds, oranges, and yellows.
Wildlife sightings included a mule deer, a green frog, and flocks and flocks of ducks, geese, and coots, probably passing through on their way south
Thanks to Stella for scouting and leading the hike and to trail maintenance for their work in clearing the trail. You can find more photos on Flickr.
