Verdant Kopp Lake

Seven people came out to hike the Kopp Lake trail on a splendid sunny day. We melded as one in our enjoyment of the lovely, quiet verdant surroundings.

The area is renowned for its carpet of wild strawberries. And the bluebells (lungwort) were everywhere.

We also saw columbines again. What great year for columbines!

We looked up in time to watch two pelicans fly past us. There was also an abundance of redwing blackbirds and other birds that were possibly terns.

We managed to make our way around a newly-downed tree.

Thanks to John for scouting and leading the hike, to Trail Maintenance for their fine work, and to the landowners for their continuing permission. You can see all the photos on Flickr.
