As any Sweet Magnolia Guest knows, Cal is a bird lover. Well, alovea is a strong word, but you get the point.

This is truly the best time of year because the Bee Balm is blooming. That means one thing a Hummingbirds! We have documented multiple varieties over the years a Rufous, Black-Chinned, Calliope and Ruby-Throated (pictured).

We feature this hike because Jill & I just did it yesterday! This is about an hour east of the Sweet Magnolia, but worth the drive East across the North Lake Pend Oreille.

This is a challenging 4 mile (each way) hike that gains about 3900 feet of altitude to the highest peak in Bonner County, ID. The reward, beyond the view and sense of accomplishment, is the greeting from the local mountain goat herd. Unfortunately, they have been trained to beg, so we have created a potentially dangerous situation for those of us properly trained to not share our sandwiches. After we shooed them away, things were fun from 10 feet away.
