North Laguna Creek Wildlife Area, Elk Grove

The North Laguna Creek Wildlife Area

We have driven past the trail hundreds of times.  It is a short walk from our current home and we always have wondered what we would find.

Trail at North Laguna Creek Wildlife Area

It really opens up into a large meadow area with quite a few oak trees, plenty of wild flowers and a few Eucalyptus Trees.

A little further along the path we ran into Laguna Creek, turtles and lots of birds.  This heron was stalking his dinner.

And look at all the sparrows zipping around the area.

And we were rewarded with a nice sunset.

It really is a nice area to hike, ride your bike or do a little jogging.  There is a bridge over the creek so you can visit North Laguna Creek Park.  We noticed that just a few blocks past the park is the Regal UA Laguna Village Theater so we are planing a hiking trip to watch a movie and then walk back home.

We really were surprised that just a few minutes from our home (near Big Horn and Amber Creek) was such a open space to explore.  Elk Grove has really done a nice job leaving areas within the city (or close by) open and easy to explore.

Thank you, Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker.  One of the things that I am trying to do is to use my YouTube Shorts to showcase some of the areas in Elk Grove.  I hope you are doing well!

Beautiful area Ray! You will still see Herons, we get visits from them as well being in the high desert. I am surprised there weren't more people enjoying the beauty of the area.

Good morning, Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! It was a little surprising not to see more people  out their, but the photographer might be pretty good at using the right angle to make the area look deserted.  😉

Good morning, Joan Cox.  Just by happenstance, Mary Margaret said she wants to find a nice place for a hike soon.  There might be a new post inspired by it.  I hope you find yourself on a great hike today!

Good morning, Sheri Sperry - MCNE®.  It is good to hear from you.  The best part of this hike is it is just 5 minutes from our home.  Elk Grove really is blessed with places like this.

That is quite a hiatus, Endre Barath, Jr. Fortunately, we live in a world that can enjoy many of the same areas others hike to because they take pictures and videos.  I do like to hike, but it does take a lot of time and effort so finding options is useful.  I hope you and Diane are enjoying the week!

Hi Ray:

Thanks for taking us along on your walk - loved seeing that heron. There's something special about being outdoors and away from civilization, enjoying the wildlife.

Good morning, Debe Maxwell, CRS.  I never get tired of watching herons.  The one above was doing a lot of hunting.  I think it is amazing how patient they are.

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS!  It does seem to be therapeutic being in open space and, in this case, it is so close to home.  I am sure it will be a part of our routine for the foreseeable future.
