"Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge"
"Trip Log ... February 3, 2008"
The River "S" Unit of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge has a 4.2 mile auto tour route and 1.5 mile seasonal hiking trail. The auto tour is an excellent way to see the Refuge. A pair of binoculars is a must and a camera makes it even more fun !!!

The day was overcast with some drizzle. The ice is gone and the sloughs are high murky water. The Tundra Swans have left - only counted 15 swans on Rest Lake, down from their hundreds a couple of weeks ago.
