What a great day! Nine hikers (and a few lively preschool children) visited the Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge on Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2016. The weather was perfect; the "trail" was perhaps the flattest that we've ever walked. More than a dozen species of birds showed up and we could name over half of them. A large flight of Sand Hill Cranes was taking it easy before continuing on to a winter in mid New Mexico and maybe on South. Some of them felt it appropriate to show off some of their team flying skills.
Dairy Queen cured any hunger pangs that arose after a sunny day in the refuge.
You are welcome to join us next Monday and Wednesday at 9 a.m. We will assure you that you won't suffer from any more flatland walking. No surcharge for sloping ground. —Doug Knudson 719-873-5239
