More geese - Another photo of the massive flock of geese at Loess Bluffs National Wildlife Refuge in Holt County Mo. The temp hovered around 0 and a stiff wind out of the north. I hunkered down in the car with my bean bag to photograph the birds. Mostly snow geese but I saw Canadians as well. President Franklin D. Roosevels established Loess Bluffs in 1935 as a refuge and breeding ground for migratory birds and other wildlife.

Take a right at the big tree - I thought it funny, unusual that a street sign was in the middle of Loess Bluffs National Wildlife Refuge. It is not an intersection of Kovington Rd. and Jasmine Dr. because Jasmine Dr. is nearly covered over and not passable by most cars. Take the right turn and you are on your way back to the main entrance to the refuge.
