Well, here’s one last adventure for 2017. Late this afternoon we decided to brave the cold and check out the cranes at Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge, hoping to spot some of the elusive whooping cranes. They were nowhere to be seen, but the thousands of sandhill cranes and many other waterfowl put on a show for us anyhow. The 2018 Festival of the Cranes is coming up in a few weeks, and we’ll be back for that. If you’ve not heard of it, it’s certainly worth seeing. Enjoy!
