Bosque del Apache

This is one of the most beautiful National Wildlife Refuges in in the U. S. system. It has spectacular settings and an abundance and variety of birds that is unparalleled. When I was there, there were 110,00 ducks, 50,000 light colored geese (mostly Snow Geese) and 8,119 Sandhill Cranes.
