We visited the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge and found it pretty dry for this time of year. After the short walk to the observation platform, we found there was little to observe as there was no water around it. Huge clouds of Canada geese periodically shifted from one area of the large pond to another for reasons best known to themselves. One of the small ponds dries up completely in the summer, and we found it still completely dry. In the other, a great blue heron strode serenely through the mud. Was it looking for signs of the huge bullfrogs that must surely be buried underneath?
