Rode horseback 3/4/2017. Still some snow and ponds partially frozen. No spring growth yet. Porcupine, deer, pheasants, quail, rapters (Western Harrier, maybe Swainson's, maybe Rough legged) hundreds of geese, and thousands of ducks. No apparent defined trail but easy to bushwhack along ancient dune tops and around sloughs as I followed Winchester Wasteway South to the west toward Dodson Road from the parking area at northern end of Road C Se. A great waterway steppe habitat to explore just following deer trails through grass, sage, ponds, stream, sloughs, Russian Olive, and sand dunes. No rocks. Feels remote although only one mile from houses and crop land. Outhouse
