        Site Description and Birding Information: This stretch of road goes through an area of mixed forest and swamps, with conifers predominating in some areas. This gives rise to the possibilities of boreal forest birds, especially in winter. Traffic is heavy and pulloffs few, so be very careful stopping along this road.
