Nisqually Wildlife Refuge

*Warning: Picture heavy post!

This will be my last post on what I did during vacation.  I had such a grand time with my family, and I appreciate them so much!

Our son and daughter-in-law took Hubby and I to another wonderful wildlife refuge.  I would come back again and again if I could!  This one is called the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge.  There is so much to explore, I barely touched the surface.  I wish I had better photos, but you will get the idea.  There were a lot of eagles, but they weren’t interested in a photo shoot.

Here is another link that shares about the refuge.

These last few photos Hubby took with his pocket camera.  There were so many waterfowl creatures, and plenty of bird watchers and better photographers than we out this day!

Arcata Marsh & Wildlife Sanctuary

*Warning: Picture heavy post!

Another great place to visit for those who are looking for serene hikes is the Arcata Marsh & Wildlife Sanctuary.  I loved it here, and could come back again and again!

Click here for a pdf of the above map.  You can see that there is much to explore!

Arcata has successfully created both a wastewater plant and wildlife sanctuary area together.  It is worth the visit!

Sequoia Creek Trail

*Warning: Picture heavy post!

I was so blessed to spend the past week and a half of vacation visiting family on the coast!  Happy, happy, happy!

While visiting, Hubby and I hiked with our daughter and family at Sequoia Creek Park.  What a wonderful place!  This park is free and has easy access in Eureka, California.  I highly recommend stretching your legs here if you are ever in the neighborhood!

If you like nature, then these photos are for you!  It was foggy, but not heavy enough to deter the hike.
