We’ve done it! We’ve finally made it into our November photos. Truthfully, we were beginning to wonder if it would every happen. October was just so chocked full of photographic excitement. But here we are. November.
One of the other volunteers had told us about some old adobes located on bordering state land just a few miles away. So, we took a ride over one day to check them out.
We had another Fence Day! Only this time we were cleaning up after others who had completed a long stretch of fencing. The area was waaaaayyyy out on the southeast portion of the refuge. It was great to see yet another section of this beautiful refuge.
We arrived at our staging location over an hour after we left the refuge. The fence line is in an area where even the regular sized four wheel drive vehicles cannot go so we fired up the OHVs (Off Highway Vehicles) and off we went.
We saw some neat things.
And that was how November began.
“October extinguished itself in a rush of howling winds and driving rain and November
arrived, cold as frozen iron, with hard frosts every morning and icy drafts that bit at
exposed hands and faces.” - J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
