Be certain to take this drive either at sunrise or no earlier than 7:30 at night. We saw a moose, deer, and mule deer. The area has a lot of hiking trails and picnic tables as well. It is a beautiful drive.

Accompanied 27 girls to Middle Lake in the park. Great interpretive programme put on by the Parks. Kids loved wandering in pond looking for "critters"! It's a Wetlands investigation.
