Last Sunday, five people came out to hike the North Saunders Lake section. It was a pleasantly warm day along a trail with great views of the lake the whole way.
The beavers have been industrious with their work on this tree. There was nothing like this when Trail Maintenance was here just a few days earlier.
Everywhere, the berries are ripening quickly—hawthorn, elderberry, chokecherry and highbush cranberry. And the evening primrose is still in bloom.
Thanks to Stella for scouting and leading the hike, to trail maintenance for clearing the trail, and to the landowners for continuing permission. You can find more photos on Flickr.
