Do some bird-watching along the Columbia Basin corridor in an extensive wetlands area known as the Potholes. Fall migration brings many interesting shorebirds, wading birds, and white pelicans. Start your weekend in the Potholes Wildlife Area. Park on the Job Corps Dike at sunrise to see the golden light bathing the shrub-steppe habitat, the potholes, and the birds that are feeding or flying overhead. Then walk north out among the ponds and look for birds, following whatever route looks interesting. Be sure to wear footgear appropriate for mud and stickers.
