6:00 AM at Ravenna P&R;, North side
Meet: 06:00 AM Ravenna P&R.; Join Vicki for a roughly 4-mile hike in the beautiful Yakima River Canyon, south of Ellensburg. It should be a productive day as we search for such migrants as Yellow-breasted Chat, Western Tanager, Lazuli Bunting, Cliff Swallows, Lewis Woodpecker and others. A variety of raptors are also likely. The trail is relatively level but hiking shoes are advisable because some areas are rocky. Bring a lunch, beverages, snacks,and a scope if you have one. Back around 6 pm. BLM manages the parking lot and charges $5/per car for the day.
