Saying goodbye, with some final photos, from the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge
As part of the Great Salt Lake ecosystem, the Refuge now hosts the largest colony of White-faced ibis in Northern America. The wet meadows and mudflats on and surrounding the Refuge are excellent feeding habitat and bring the ibis in from April through October, and the deep emergent marshes provide nesting habitat for the colony throughout the summer.

Except for a few Grebe photos, which I will post later, these are the final grouping of photos from Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge. I mentioned, in a previous post, the film we watched at the visitor center. This film showed Grebes doing their mating ritual. It was amazing; I will never again gaze upon a Grebe without thinking of their beautiful dance!
We spent two nights, last Sunday and Monday at Willard Bay State Park and a few hours at the refuge. I took over 200 photos of this beautiful area. Hopefully, one day we will visit again.
Tuesday we arrived at Three Island Crossing State Park in Idaho and camped along the Snake River. Photos of this beautiful area coming up next.
We are currently at LaPine State Park to the south of Bend and north of LaPine, Oregon camped along the Deschutes River. Another gorgeous river. We have been camped here since Wednesday. In the morning we head to Bullards Beach State Park near Bandon, Oregon.
Until next post: Enjoy your journey!
