The Feet & Forks strolled through the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge today, soaking in a gorgeous spring day.
The Nisqually River Delta, near Olympia, WA, is a refuge for wildlife, hikers and photographers. In fact, jogging and bike riding aren't allowed so as not to interfere with the enjoyment of nature.
Besides numerous birds like this great blue heron and Canada goose, we saw frogs, snakes, dragonflies and a muskrat. The freshwater of the river mingles with the saltwater of the South Puget Sound to form an estuary teeming with life.
Since it's a wetland area subject to high water during high tide and mucky mud during low tide, there is a long boardwalk for walkers.
|Can you spot Mt. Rainier?|
Tomorrow I vow to get back to quilting.
Have a colorful day
