Adventures of Five Lakes Lisa
I hiked for 4.5 miles and saw two eagles, an osprey in its nest on the power line trail, countless downy woodpeckers, a pleated woodpecker and many more birds. There are countless varieties of migrating ducks here this time of year.
While on the power line trail I spotted a large dear curled up. It seemed to be just enjoying the warm spring sun and chose not to run when I went by. It was fun as my trail took me only about 25 free from the deer. It just watched me while I watched it as I walked by.
It is, right now, a great time to hike the trails as you can see much more because there is no foliage yet. I keep an eye out for antler sheds as well. I’ve hiked the trails here since I was 16 and this time of year I always manager to see new sights.
Of course, I am waiting for ice out and my first sunrise kayak. It won’t be long, as the ice is getting thin and dark.
