Collier Memorial State Park

Jeanette scanning Klamath Marsh
May 23-25 - On Tuesday the 25 we left Summer Lake to travel over to Collier Memorial State Park, taking the Silver Lake Road over to Highway 97, stopping at Klamath Marsh for a little birding.  This was a great route, hardly any traffic and excelent pavement. Click here for our bird list.

Resting in the shade
After getting set up in the Collier campground in site A10, we spent the afternoon relaxing under the shade of our awning.  We discovered we could just spot birds from our chairs and so started up a bird list.  Later in the afternoon we ventured over to Spring Creek to hike along the cool stream bank and look for more birds.  Here is a link to our Observation List.

Hiking the Williamson River Trail
On Wednesday we made a big push to hike the Williamson River Trail to the Williamson River Campground and back, some five miles or more.  This is a trail we worked on when we worked as Volunteers here the fall of 2010. It was fun to re-travel the route that we have hiked so many times through the years of continuing to volunteer here in 2011 and 2012. Click here for our observation list.  

Birding the River Loop Trail
Thursday morning we got in a good bird walk on the River Loop Trail before traveling north to Sun River for lunch with Kerry and Debbie Kliever, and then on to Bend for an overnighter at my brother Mark's place. You can see our bird list from the River Loop Trail here
