Payette Trail 4-26-17

Photos by Dan, Katherine and Keeley

We started the day in 51 degree weather and overcast skies.  The lake was like a mirror at the start and the scenery was spectacular.  As we progressed, we noticed that there was a light drizzle at times on the lake, but we were dry in the forest. 

There were some nice flowers, like Henderson’s Shooting Stars, along with an Osprey Nest, complete with 2 adult Osprey.  We also saw a Downy Woodpecker, Canada Geese and Buffleheads.  Lunch was long to enjoy the views on Hal’s Point.  The Poison Oak was showing it’s colors everywhere and appeared to be VERY happy.  A few ticks also made their appearance  We completed the hike, escaping the rain and took refreshments in the Boomtown Saloon.
