Camas Prairie Centennial Marsh

On July 15, Robin and I took a trip to Twin Falls for a family gathering and Memorial service. But we decided to go through Fairfield and the Camas Prairie. We usually stop at one of the restaurants in Fairfield, but the one we usually stop at is out of business. Boo-Hoo! So we found the Solder Creek Brewing Company, which actually does not brew any beer commercially, but it is a unique restaurant and fun. Try it sometime when you are in Fairfield. And then we left for the Camas Prairie Centennial Marsh to see if we could find some Sandhill Cranes. We did not. But we did find some other interesting wildlife. And I finally got to photograph a Yellow Headed Blackbird, which I have been trying to photograph all summer,  and American Avocets. Check the photographs out and enjoy. And don’t forget to Left-Click any of these photographs to view Full Screen. Cheers!

The Camas Prairie. Beautiful and teaming with wildlife! And yes, that is snow on the mountains in the far background.

So there you go. A great day trip to take out of Boise or a great diversion to the Interstate if you are going to Sun Valley or points East. Have fun!
