Coller State Wildlife Area hike
Beautiful day with some sun, some light clouds, and showers that held off until we got home. This is one of a few places where we can walk over 4.5 miles and enjoy only slight elevation gains. Yet we enjoyed gazing at cliffs and watching the river flow. We'll probably do it again in the snow in a few months.
Suggested follow-up this fall: bring a chair, a book, and binoculars. Walk a ways along the river, find a lonely spot and spend an hour, watching for Canada geese, elk, deer, maybe an eagle or two, flickers (seen today) and who knows what else. This may become your special place, close to home, full of memories.
It's big enough for all of us.
Thanks for the pictures, Dennis. To Wayne and Linda, our best wishes to you in this time of grieving and hope.
We will try to find water on Wednesday at "Lost" Lake" another special but close to home destination (wear orange and walk gently and quietly). 9 a.m. at Visitor Center of South Fork.
