After the picnic we hiked on the Harris Creek trail, then most people were eager to leave, so I did not propose to drive around the refuge or to walk into the marshes where wildlife is. But I did know then that the refuge was very beautiful, with flush green marsh lands,many waterfowl, such as white egrets, grey herons, brown/black geese ... along with butterflies, dragonflies since we drove inside the refuge along a gravel road on the way to the visitor's center. Here is the proof.
There were many types of dragonflies on the Harris Creek Trail - well camouflaged, hard to see when they landed on bushes
There are many ponds in the refuge for water fowls
Geese and Egrets on the shore of Lake Taxoma
There are more egrets and herons in the marsh.
We planed to go back to explore Hagerman Wildlife Refuge this fall already.
