On our hike around the Lake Ferguson loop, we started to think about some of our initial hydrology questions. One of the main questions we want to investigate is the change of lake water volume as the hydrologic cycle changes in a shifting climate.
We checked out some of the lakes on the hike and saw some interesting changes in lake height by observing the vegetation changes along the edge of the lake. We also found a lake that dried up entirely.
We finished up the hike along the beautiful Lake Ferguson. I even took a quick dip!
