Thomas Guide: NA
This walk along the west rim of the Lagunas will be approximately 3.5 miles round trip on well developed trails with easy to moderate elevation changes. We will go through mixed forest habitat, as well as, meadow grasslands, with the goal being the “Water-of-the-Woods pond area. In addition to the typical montane species, we will look for Olive-sided, Ash-throated, and Pacific-slope Flycatchers, Western Kingbirds, Western Tanagers, Bullock’s Orioles, Purple Finches, and Lawrence’s Goldfinches. Exceptionally, the Clark’s Nutcrackers might still remain. Bring water, and be prepared for temperature changes. Porta-potties at the trailhead only.
