11/9/2017 Bear River Refuge at Sunset

I was heading for Texas to attend a library conference and visit my family. Since it is cheaper for me to drive to SLC to catch my flight, I was able to swing by the Bear River Refuge at sunset. It was GORGEOUS. The air was crisp without being too cold, the wind had stilled, and the light was magnificent.

Beautiful, but there were few birds.

But the refuge was beautiful

Not a lot of birds, but a whole lot of gorgeousness
