Another interesting visit to a National Wildlife Refuge in the Willamette Valley. This time the destination was the Baskett Slough NWR west of Salem. This is a fun location to hike with a combination of wetlands, and uplands with Oregon white oak.
The area is famous for its butterflies, and I did spot some pretty ones. The wildflowers added splashes of colors along the trail.
As usual, I saw a few deer. They’re used to people wandering in the refuge.
I hiked to the top of Baskett Butte and then a ways to the north.
For an outing of roughly three miles, it made for a very pleasant outing.
