Swan Rangers visited Bond Falls, North Krause Creek and the Lubec Hills during the week ending in a hot Saturday, May 30, 2020!
In separate pairs, Keith-Pam and Chris-Fawn hiked to Bond Falls, finding the trail well cleared. Joel hiked the Lubec Hills just east of Marias Pass while Keith bushwhacked a ways up North Krause Creek via the Peters Ridge Road.

While the Swan Ranger Saturday group outings remain suspended until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic, we will get a report out each week with items of interest to folks trying to get outside for some "social distancing" and spirit-calming fresh air.
