Sunday in Nebraska: DeSoto Wildlife Refuge





Unfortunately, half of the DeSoto Wildlife Refuge was closed or rather, only accessible by taking a huge detour, so we didn't see that this time. We did, however, see the Visitor Center, which is highly recommendable.

They have an almost artistic looking exhibit of a vast collection of items from a sunken 1860s Missouri steamboat, row upon row of tools and bottles and cans, all neatly arranged and dramatically lit. Also, there are lots of huge picture windows overlooking the biggest lake. Yep, those are white pelicans!

In autumn, hundreds of thousands of snow geese stop here during their migration (and lots of bald eagles hoping for a tasty snack). Hope we'll see them next time!

In other news, I've finished knitting half a grass!
