Sheepy Ridge Wildlife Trail Tule Lake Lookout

After hiking Sheepy Ridge in March, I thought it'd be fun to look back at the photos from when we did it a couple years ago. (Here's the link to the March visit. And here's the link to May's.)



What a difference 2 months makes!

I'm so glad I took photos from the same spot each time. Wonder what other locations I've been to in different seasons. Hmmm...that sounds like a project...

Sheepy Ridge Wildlife Trail & Discovery Marsh ↔ Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge Complex

When we returned to the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge, I knew we had to make time to hike up Sheepy Ridge. The trail is right behind the visitor's center and I highly recommend it. Gosh, it's steep, but that view at the top is spectacular!

Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge Complex

Here's the link to the blog post from my first time hiking Sheepy Ridge. It's pretty hilarious to look back and read it! I had no idea what I was in for.

We also walked the Discovery Marsh Trail, which is right across the street from the visitor's center...

Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge ↔ Klamath Basin Complex


The Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge is one of our favorite refuges in California. The wide open space, beautiful backdrop of mountains and wide array of wildlife make it a must-see destination for nature lovers.



I put together a short video of some of the birds we spotted during our latest visit to the refuge:
