Savannah National Wildlife Refuge Visit; 24 October 2015

Archives

After a good visit to the Savannah NWR on Friday another visit was in order on Saturday, this time with family. After a very late breakfast, we got over to the refuge around 1130 and spent several hours there. It was just as good a visit as Friday’s with even more large alligators (15 on Saturday compared to 11 on Friday) and wading birds in some of the same areas since it was low tide.
