"Julia Butler Hansen NWR, Washington ... January 26, 2011"
The Trip:    Unseasonably warm January day ... mostly sunny with lots of high overcast and clouds coming in ... went for no particular reason, just to get outdoors ...

Julia Butler Hansen NWR:    Located in southwestern Washington and northwestern Oregon, the Julia Butler Hansen Refuge was established in 1972 specifically to protect and manage the endangered Columbian white-tailed deer. The refuge contains over 5,600 acres of pastures, forested tidal swamps, brushy woodlots, marshes, and sloughs along the Columbia River in both Washington and Oregon.
