On the plus side, the Best Western Lodge did have humming-bird feeders on the windows and they were stuffed with hummers - we finally got black-chinned, broad-tailed, rufous and calliope.
We agreed that the all-day walk Owen and Jake wanted to do wasn't feasible so we went all the way to the top, for the river walk. Again looking out for condors and again dipping though. The walk was interesting. Starts off as a stroll along the river bank, and ends with you having to wade along the river itself - either with ore without shoes!! Boys loved it and disappeared off for what seemed like hours. We baled early and went back. All met up again though and had another couple of short walks on the way back down. got a few new birds including lesser goldfinch and warbling vireo. Finished off with a nice meal in Springfield before heading back to our hotel and a few beers on Helen and Yoss's balcony!!
