On the drive to the area I had thought the large white birds in the fields were snow geese. These 4 trumpeter swans were the only ones we saw. Now I'm not sure who was in the fields!Green LOL

We had a wonderful weekend and went on the boat tour with David Hancock.
Here are some of my pictures. Kilby Camp grounds - what a beautiful area! On the boat tour we saw fishermen catch and release a sturgeon. CLICK 2x

Lots of fish for them to feed on. The boat stopped and let us out on a sandy, rocky area - thank goodness they didn't leave us there.Green LOL
