Early Bird Hike

This week, had a great turnout for our bright and early (7:30am) hike up the steep Tam-a-lau trail!  The Tam-a-lau trail is known in Oregon for it’s spectacular views of many of the peaks of the Cascades, a birds eye view of the 3 rivers that make Lake Billy Chinook, and excellent opportunity to see eagles and other raptors!

Every Sunday in August the interp team will be leading this hike, free of charge!  Every Sunday, 7am, at Deschutes Amphitheatre.  That’s right folks, at no cost you may lug two waterbottles up a series of switchbacks while dodging rattlesnakes in the hot sun.  Sounds crazy?  Not at all.  The view is unmatchable and completely worth it.  A good opportunity to get away from the noisy hustle-bustle of boats and grumpy campers, just you and the breeze and the sweet sound of Talia’s voice whisper-yelling sweet nothings about Juniper encroachment.  Awww, nature.  We love you.
