Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge Hike – Carty Unit

Hike Distance: 4.5 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 801.4 miles

Elevation Gain: 313 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 76500 feet

A repeat of yesterday’s hike so my wife could see the flowers and this beautiful place.  We were fortunate to only see a few people on this hike despite it being the last day of school in Vancouver, WA.

We tried hiking the exact same hike that I did yesterday but unfortunately some of the forested area on the north side of the refuge was closed due to spraying of Poison Oak.  A very warm late afternoon but with adequate wind to cool us down.
