Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge ↔ Klamath Basin Complex


Last month, we took a drive up to the Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge to see for ourselves if there really are up to 500 Bald Eagles wintering there. Sure enough, we were not disappointed.


(For pics and video of the birds in the area, please visit my birding website Wings and Daydreams.)


The roads were icy on the way up, but the scenery and views are totally worth slippin' and slidin' all over the road! Once we arrived at the refuge, it was a little frosty and all of the mountains and foothills were dusted beautifully with snow.




It's amazing what a difference a drought year can make!




Let's go on an adventure!

Sacramento River National Wildlife Refuge ↔ Pine Creek Unit

Vaughn the Road Again travel blog

We enjoyed the most beautiful walk on the nature trail loop at the Pine Creek Unit of the Sacramento River National Wildlife Refuge!


It was a cloudy day (my favorite kind!) and there were plenty of birds to keep us company as the clouds drifted overhead. We didn't encounter a single person during our two hour walk and it was a great place to reconnect with nature. I already can't wait to go back!
