Monday February 27, 2012-Caddo Lake NWR

Happy Birthday to Stella. She has put up with me for a loooong time and today is her birthday.

Today was a pretty good day around the refuge. I helped Todd in making up a couple of equestrian trail signs in the morning and Ron and I put up some new street signs along the auto tour route in the afternoon. I was tired at the end of the day but we had accomplished a lot.

We met for another happy hour on the deck in front of the visitors center this evening. Its a nice way to end the day. We talked about doing a large breakfast one morning and perhaps we'll do a potluck supper one night. We'll all be leaving here before you know it.

Here are a couple of photos of the boy scout troop that came out here over the weekend.

Here is a group photo of the troop with two of the signs they erected. They did a great job.

Here they are preparing to erect the post that one young man is holding. As it turned out, we were not able to drive the UTV's down this trail due to a couple of large trees that had fallen. The boys were able to maneuver around the trees and walk down the trail, but we met them on the other end and got the job done.

Our dogs love to walk down these trails. One of the shorter trails is right across the street from where we are parked and the dogs look forward to me taking them over there. So many new smells to gather! They will certainly miss this place when we leave here in April.

So long.
