"Trip Log ... December 31, 2010"
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 !!!

Bright sunny COLD (as in everything was FROZEN) day ... lots of traffic with everyone getting their last birds of 2010.
