The channeled scablands region west of the lakes fills the scenic views here, creating a wonderful mosaic, especially in the twilight hours. The low angle of light casts the textured landscape into stark relief, creating complex patterns of shade and light. This glorious scenic landscape is made richer yet thanks to the plethora of wildlife thriving in the area. On any given day, you might see one or more of the following: coyotes, rabbits, hawks, deer, reptiles (rattlesnakes, bull snakes), and birds! birds! birds! (sandhill cranes, owls, cliff swallows, violet green swallows, American kestrels, northern harriers, and red-tailed hawks).
