My Visit To Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge

I visited with my friend, Linda Rockwell in Albuquerque, New Mexico and she drove me down to the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. I have always wanted to visit this refuge. This refuge is well known for its huge flocks of wintering cranes and geese.

We did the twelve-mile-long loop road before it got to hot and I was able to see birds I have not seen before. The visitor center was even amazing.

Thank you Linda for my amazing first time visit to this refuge and I will visit this refuge again but maybe in the winter when the cranes fly in.
