This is a view of what we see, from our site at "Pahranagat Wildlife Refuge" site.
It is very peaceful and lots of birds to view all around, such as mallards, mojave rattlesnake in the spring and summer; bald eagles, american avocet, desert tortoise, in the fall; tundra swan, green winged teal, the northern shoveler in the winter. That is just a few of the different types of birds you might see.
Upper Pahranagat Lake is about 4 miles east of Alamo, on 93. in 1963 the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service designated 5380 acres of lakes, marshes, wet meadows and desertuplands as Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge. It is a stopover for waterfowl and songbirds as they migrate south in the winter and north in th winter.
After our stay a Pahranagat, we will beheading towards Searchlight. Then on to our home territory, off of Sidewinder Rd.. DesertDales son, Ken, from North Caolina, well be out . They want to ride their bikes together, as they use to years ago.
