Now, here is some of the bird and animal life we saw!

Horned Grebe in Breeding Plumage

Common Loon
Early Saturday morning we heard a loon calling. It was so lonely and melancholy.

Red-winged Blackbird
This guy would fly into our camp and chew us out every hour or so.

Desert Bighorn Sheep
A group of about 6 bighorn peaked over the ridge at us on Saturday morning.

Evidence of a passing snake.
By the look of the J-shaped impressions it was probably a Sidewinder.

Evidence of a passing lizard.

Here are some of the flowers that we captured in photo.

Our camp and bay early Sunday morning.
Our camp was on a sandy beach and the sand was clean and white.

Denalee and Bryan coming across the bay to pick me up after an early morning hike on Sunday morning.

Can you see my shoe in the photo.
I am looking straight down on Denalee and Bryan.
