Last Saturday, while most of our buses and drivers were up at Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge, my husband and I got up early (for a Saturday), stacked our kayaks on our car, and took off for Cathedral Park.

Happy Tuesday Blog Readers!
Don’t forget to mark your schedules for the start of the BirdFest and Bluegrass Festival at the Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge, starting this Friday!
