  1. Just took a quiet drive through the Recreation Area and were treated to a view (from the rear!) of a herd of deer on the S side of the camping area (B). The true delight of our tour were the 2 pairs of mated eagles teaching their fledglings to fish through the ice on the NW side of the lake. It was an 8-eagle day! Fabulous!
