Wetland Scenes,Teals, Cormorants, Blue Jays, Grackles, Robins,Hairy Woodpeckers,White-crowned Sparrows, and A Mourning Dove At The Vermilon River..

Looking North.
No message to this post. The weather has warmed up, and it is therefore good hiking weather. There are two additional trails on this wetland. North is a 10km well groomed trail that is actually a cross country ski/snowshoe trail following the Vermilon; to the south is a trail much rougher over the ridge to Green's Lake, which has a few houses on it, but all in all is virtually devoid of humans. I'm going to try the Green's Lake Trail soon.
