Project 365 Day 58 - Cameron Prairie NWR

Cameron Prairie National Wildlife Refuge

On a lighter note..........we stopped at another wildlife refuge which didn't have as much damage as Sabine. Cameron Prarie NWR is small at 9,621 acres but is located at the convergence of two major flyways for migrating birds. The refuge is comprised of marsh, coastal prairie, and old rice fields. Normally there is an auto-tour route but the interior roads are still closed due to Hurricane Ike last September. Road side pull offs are still open for tourists, as well as the visitor center.




This turtle is called a red eared slider.

Thank you for becoming a follower of my blog. My grandparents are full-time also and when I was younger I spent many summers traveling with them. Those are memories that will never go away and never be replaced. I look forward to seeing where your adventures take you and possibly "re-visiting" some places I saw when I was younger.
