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. :)
