"Trip Log ... July 8, 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 !!!

Nice cooler July day, overcast with filtered sun ... interesting to see a group of nearly 30 American White Pelicans !!!!!!
