Six members of the Vermilion Forks Field Naturalists and one guest spent about 2 hours snowshoeing the trail at Swan Lake. Part of the trail is new for this winter and it is about 3km in length with a few steeper hills to give you a good workout.
We stopped for a snack break at the picnic table overlooking the lake. The group saw 2 bald eagles, a black-billed magpie and numerous crows and ravens as well as 5 deer and lots of deer tracks. The day was mild after the recent snows with the sun trying to make an appearance.
