Wetlands Nature Trail In Fallon

Welcome to my blog, folks.
We have arrived at the "Churchill County Regional Park" in Fallon for a few days of "Birding" at the
"Fallon  Wetlands Nature Trail" .
One  event is a self-guided tour of the wetland.

These swallows are building their nest on rafters in picnic area.
NAS (Naval Air Station)Fallon is in the Carson Desert.  In 1903 the development and operations of the  was started.  It  provided irrigation water for the Lahonton Valley.
Then in 1993 the Navy had plans had plans to open this section to the public as a "wetlands".
There are several different sites to view.  Here are just a few Soda Lake, Carson River Diversion, Line Reservoir, Carson Lake Wetlands, NAS Fallon Nature Trail, Stillwater National Wildlife Refuge, plus more.
Now for the fun part, DesertDale's photo.
