Such beauty in this small wildlife refuge in Clark County , Washington -- twenty minutes from my abode. It was a first time visit yesterday. Took a few pics of the passing panorama as we walked the trails. Above was a cattail pod in the foreground that redwing blackbirds were enjoying. Off in the far distance is Mount Hood peeking over the mountains.
The mountains you see in the background are the Cascades. The forefront is open wild grassy land where many birds can be observed. My intent was to just walk and enjoy all that nature had to show. Just walk and observe -- it was a beautiful day.
