Saturday Snapshot – June 8, 2019

Last week, I shared pictures from our visit to the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge in Arivaca, Arizona.  As I mentioned, we ran into some locals on our walk who suggested we head south to see the other end of the wildlife refuge.

After lunch at a local cantina, that is just what we did.  We drove down to within a stone’s throw of the southern border.  This part of the park is more developed–in Arivaca, it was just a series of trails.  Here, there was a lovely visitors center.  We happened to come on the day that the volunteers were having their appreciation potluck.  Yet, they were kind enough to take a break from the festivities to show us around and direct us on a hike the kids would enjoy.  And, once we returned, they even let the kids partake in their desert table!

  1. I have lived in the same county all my life, and I had no idea there was a national wildlife refuge here. And it’s 110,000 acres! Isn’t that crazy? Now that I’m retired, I’m a Texas Master Naturalist, and we do volunteer work at the refuges. It’s a great deal of fun, and it’s wonderful for children, I think.
