The pictures you are about to view are largely from Glacial Park, which would represents a large portion of the southern part of the proposed Hack-ma-tack National Wildlife Refuge. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of wildlife in the pictures because no matter how quiet I try to be, it's very difficult to get very close to any of the vast numbers of birds and other wildlife that inhabit the area or use it as a flyway. Perhaps it's partly because I'm 6'1", 210 pounds and carry a backpack that makes me look like Big Foot. I'd probably scare people off too if there were ever any out there when I take these kind of images. Plus it takes too long to set up my old fashioned Ansel Adam's type field camera. However, one morning I carried an 8' ladder out, and put pvc pipe extensions on my tripod legs to get above the tall stemmed flowers in the shots in the eighteenth and nineteenth rows (images 10, 62, 83). While atop the ladder, a small bird came and perched within a foot of my face and we just sat there and studied each other for the longest time. But that's one of the things that makes this place special. I go out well before sunrise. More often than not there is thick fog and I have the entire place to myself. When I'm standing quietly waiting for the right light, the sounds of the cranes, frogs and other birds are phenomenal, especially with the fog. It's a very primeval experience. You can hear the life teeming all around you. As much as I like having the place all to myself, I do welcome the attempt to give it the status it deserves for it's contribution to wildlife, and to make more people aware of it so that they might share the same experiences I've been lucky enough to have, and capture, at least the visual aspect of the experience, on two dimensional film. Enjoy, explore, and most of all support the preservation of what remains of the natural world around us, including this very special place.
