Monte Vista NWR

Makes no difference who you are

What a trip we had today, and this is part of it—ninety miles to Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge in southern Colorado to see the cranes. Almost all of these are Canada geese, but please look closely. Just the other side of the road from here (turn 180°), there were sandhill cranes to the horizon! We were in a frenzy of appreciation. Sandwiches and chocolate milk inside the car. Sixty degrees, no wind. Windows down. Honking, squawking, quacking, croaking birds outside. Glorious clean air. I got out and walked around, shooting pictures like a madman.

    “Honking, squawking, quacking, croaking…”

    you were taking all those pictures but you didn’t record any of that?? (i could do an entire album based on those sounds… 😉 )

      I hadn’t thought about the sounds we’d hear. Quite the deal, though, quite the deal.
