Bobs Lakes Professional Review and Guide
"Winter, while frequently bitterly cold here, offers unique hiking opportunities. Dress warmly and you’ll enjoy exploring the snow-dappled sagelands. This area serves as a winter stopping area for trumpeter swans, cranes, geese, mergansers, goldeneyes, canvasbacks, and other migrating waterfowl.
Deer fill the coulee here, and during winter, when the lake levels are low, the many species of wildlife that roam through the area leave their tracks for you to enjoy—giving you the chance to experience the animals even if you never see them. Don’t know how to find and read tracks? No worries! The soft mud of the low-water lake basins captures perfect imprints of passing animals, including birds."
