In our search for the Fall Birds of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, Shannon Rio, the Klamath Bird Observatory Board President, will guide us ten miles through high mountain forests and meadows as we walk the Pacific Crest Trail from Highway 66 to Little Hyatt Lake. At the lake, we will stop to eat lunch and to look for water birds. Our return walk will take us along a public road back to our starting place.
