It is raining here in the valley this morning and snow is falling in the high country in the middle of June so I am sitting here dreaming of Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge. Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge holds a very dear spot in my heart because of the birds and animals but also because of the stunning beauty of the Centennial Valley and the Centennial Mountains.
The Upper and Lower Lakes, Elk Creek, Red Rock Creek and Wigeon Pond all have their beauty too. It is difficult to see in this small image that there are ducks and coots around the little grassy islands in the picture above.
I feel a sense of wonder and peace whenever I am visiting Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge and I also feel that way when I view my images of this great location. So today as the rain falls and the gray clouds float overhead I will be thinking of my next journey to Red Rock Lakes, in fact I am longing for it.
