"Trip Log ... July 27, 2009"
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 !!!

Early morning run around the River "S" Unit, before the 100-degree heat kicked in ... looking for shorebirds ... very quiet day otherwise ...
