The Flooded Field

After visiting an old New Mexico friend in Tacoma earlier in the week, we made a stop at the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge. Remarkable things have been happening there. Dikes and dams have been removed and what once was pasture is being restored to salt marsh. There is a phenomenal 2 mile long boardwalk which wanders over the former fields all the way to the Puget Sound. This conversion from meadows to wetlands has a strangely appealing apocalyptic look. Birds are everywhere.

The Cloud Appreciation Society has featured some new work!

Love this.

I'll put that walk along that boardwalk on my list of must-do things before I die.

And a Cloud Appreciation Society! I have to note that in a Satuday Sharing.

Have a wonderful weekend.
