> One of our granddaughters spent two days and nights at a Girl Scout camp on Langlois Lake southeast of Carnation, WA. where she saw many Trumpeter Swans and some Snow Geese. There are Trumpeter Swans up and down the Snoqualmie Valley, but seeing them on Langlois Lake seemed special because the lake has a remote, wild feeling and we enjoyed seeing them gliding on the lake versus in corn fields down in the valley.

> The lake was packed with swans when we arrived at 9:30 this morning. Conditions were pretty foggy, but not as bad as in the valley.

> The birds starting leaving around 10 a.m. to feed in the valley, but some birds stayed longer.

> To access Lake Langlois head south out of Carnation and turn left on NE 24th Street. Proceed 1.6 miles to the road on the left that accesses the boat ramp. The road is closed for the winter so park outside the gate and walk down the hill using care because the road is slippery with fallen leaves. If you have trouble with steep hills, it would be better not to go.
