Here's a quick little video of a doe and her two fawns we watched at the refuge last night. I'm better at photography than I am at video, but here it is, short and sweet. :)
St. Mary's Peak obscured in the rain clouds behind the pond and barn.
The colors in this photo caught my eye after leaving the refuge.
Always something to pull over and stop for. :)
As we took the backroads home, we stopped to watch and photograph a flock of turkey vultures. While doing so, this bald eagle flew overhead and landed off in the field.
I captured several cool photos of the vultures, so they will be featured in their own post.
Coming up next... :)

A beautiful February day at the refuge!
After crummy weather, being sick, and working on taxes, it sure felt glorious! :)
I love this view of Mill Point and Mill Point West!
Who knows, maybe I'll manage to get to the top of them someday? :)
My three musketeers. :)
A little fun at the refuge with a quick race or two. :)
Always taking pictures. It's what I do! :)
A fabulous view of St. Mary's with plenty of snow on top. I love our mountains! :)
For some unknown reason, I've always had a fondness for interesting trees. :)
The geese seem to be enjoying the sunshine, too. :)
The ridge between Kootenai and Bass. I'm hoping to get up to the crags this year. :)
Whatever you choose to do, take time to enjoy life!
See you in the next post. :)
We enjoyed watching the swans on our mid-winter, rainy day walk at the Lee Metcalf Wildlife Refuge today. There's always something to see ... and take photos of. :)
Kenai Nature Trail at the Lee Metcalf Wildlife Refuge, December 21, 2019.
A mix of mild temps, increasing clouds, a bit of wind, and changing skies.
Looking forward to longer daylight hours ahead. :)
I squeezed in a quick drive through the refuge after taking the girls to their dentist appointments this morning and before heading to work this afternoon. We were blessed with the opportunity to watch seven sandhill cranes and a great blue heron in various places along the way. Always fun to see and hear the wildlife. :)
A nice sunny day after a streak of dreary ones, and my first thoughts after work are to get in a walk at the refuge on the Kenai Nature Trail. It's a great place to soak up some sunshine while looking for wildlife and enjoying a beautiful view of the mountains.
Some of the snow has definitely melted since our last trip a couple of weeks ago, so we had a good mix of snow and bare ground, along with some standing water and mushy mud. I think it might be possible that spring could have officially arrived.
On today's outing we had the opportunity to see a porcupine, a muskrat, a couple of ground squirrels chasing each other, along with plenty of ducks and geese. :)
