I took a quick walk at Snow Mtn Ranch on this mostly sunny, warm afternoon. I walked the Cowiche Mtn Trail West across the field to the mouth of the ravine, up & down the Riparian Overlook Trail, then across the Riparian Connector Trail to the Ditch Bank Trail & back to my truck. There were quite a few nice wildflowers. The highlight, however, was a mother great horned owl & 3 young in a nest at the top of a snag where the Connector Trail crosses the old irrigation canal. I only saw a couple of other hikers out this afternoon.
