"Trip Log ... June 10, 2011"
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 !!!

Overcast cool gray day ... never saw the sun ... was hoping to find the Eared Grebe on Rest Lake who was in breeding plumage ... SUCCESS !!!!! ... also spent some time at the Carty Unit and the Bachelor Island Unit with the Refuge staff.
