Bosque del Apache trip

Left here the Sunday before Thanksgiving at 5am for the 10 hour drive to San Antonio, New Mexico, gateway to Bosque del Apache NWR. This would be our third trip to the famous refuge. Only there for 2-1/2 days but they were spectacular with some excellent shooting and fantastic light. The sandhill cranes and snow geese were awesome and cooperated very nicely. We had friends with us who had never been there. I was somewhat concerned that I would not put us in the right place at the right time but as it turned out within about five minutes of us arriving at any one place, Art Morris would show up with his group so I knew we were on track.
