SA40 Horse Mountain & High Elevation 1 | 2020 | $20
Time - 7:00 am - 12:30 pm
Trip Leader(s): Jim McIntosh
Meet in the community center lobby.
Head to Horse Mountain (about 30 minutes inland) in the Douglas fir and pine forest. We will search for montane species such as Mountain Quail along the higher elevations (4500 feet) reached on Forest Service Route 1 (Titlow Hill). Bring a lunch, warm clothes, and expect beautiful scenery! There may even be some snow on the ground, but that never discourages the Mountain Chickadees. The land here is managed by the Six Rivers National Forest (Trinity District). Roads are tight up in this hill-timber country and unexpected vehicles can cause problems. For this reason we ask that you consider car-pooling to the greatest extent possible. Prepare for variable terrain, possibly snow or wet ground. Restrooms are not available. There may be opportunities to use a spotting scope if you have one to bring. This event repeats again Sunday as #SU66.
