Autumn at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge

“Any meeting of a river and a sea is a place of change…It will be proof of our ability to survive…if we learn to respect wild places like the Nisqually Delta, to trust them for their naturalness, and to love them for their power to move us.” Victor B. Scheffer, Scholar ans Author.

My son and I had to find a way to spend a few hours while waiting to meet with his son. I’d driven past this place, just off the freeway, many times over the last 25 years. So thankful that our day led us here:>) First, the signs, and then ducks, turtles, frogs and autumn colors. Photos taken by both Jon and I. Here are 41 photos.

    • Still using my Panasonic DMC-ZS19 digital camera. The long lens is better than most binoculars. The close ups are okay, as long as I hold still, don’t get too close, and then I enlarge on computer.
      I take my loaner Sony along, but it just can’t handle distance. It has a macro setting that I haven’t tried yet.

  1. So beautiful Patti. And your son made for a handsome model!! πŸ™‚ We loved everything from the berries to the clingy mushroom on it’s tree. Love to look through the eyes of an artist. Oh what we can see. πŸ™‚
