Tamarac Wildlife Refuge

We live near the refuge, it is one of my favorite places to escape to. When visiting Detroit Lakes and the Avenue of the Flags it seemed like a great way to meander on toward home.

Madison wanted to help a turtle across the road..she was a little afraid of the turtle..so Grandpa helped her out..the turtle peed sideways..and almost got Grandpa. If you are a young girl of 12 or even a old girl of 58 this is pretty funny.

The Canadian Honkers have babies, they are always fun to watch, they are such good parents.


There was a pod of Pelicans forming a line to chase schools of fish.

There were Yellow Lady’s Slippers blooming. Catching them in bloom was a bit unexpected, but a beautiful surprise. For people in the area they were blooming heavily between Pine Lake and Tamarac Lake on Sunday. This is the first time I have caught their bloom time in the refuge..so it was a wonderful day for me:)

    Turtles can be a bit daunting if you haven’t been around one. You live in such an interesting area.
