Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge Hike River ‘S’ Unit

Hike Distance: 5.8 miles

Elevation Gain: 87 feet

To say this was a phenomenal day would be an understatement.  The weather was perfect and the sights were amazing.  I had so much fun on this hike that I only averaged slightly a bit over 1 mph.  I must have talked with 10+ people, many of which were bird watchers that educated me.

I basically walked the entire scenic drive loop, the Kiwa loop trail and the bird blind trail. I felt very fortunate to see so much wildlife and photograph it, as can be seen in my pictures.  I saw Hawks, a pair of Great Horned Owls, Swallows, Turtles, Red Winged Blackbirds, Blue Herons and a deer! 🙂
