We went to this Wildlife Refuge to rest up some.
The place was ideal. The only sounds to be heard were birds and frogs. I heard my first loon in real life while there. Saw some swans too but was unable to get a photo. Also the fireflies came out at night. That was a treat as I haven't seen fireflies since I was a little guy on a vacation out to Missouri. Ah, but there was a problem.
Although the bugs were next to nothing, the abundance of ticks in the grasses made up for it. Here is Tickbait gathering up some to bring inside the RV. I have to say the flea and tick medicine I apply to her every month really works. They abandon cat right away once inside. Then they come for me!
On one walk I came across these prints. That is a big animal.
There were ponds and canals in the refuge but I couldn't really go out exploring and hiking what with all those little bloodsucking buggers out there waiting.
So instead of staying a week here, we bailed out after just two days.
