Corn Creek Adventure 4-2-14

Good afternoon to all my readers, out there in this land of "honey."  There is so much to see and do, with out going to another country.  
We are at The Desert National Wildlife Refuge area.  Not a lot of boondocking, but you can find if, as DesertDale found us a site not far the Desert NWR area.

This is the display they have on their wall as you walk into the visitor center.  Their are 4 different trail sites you can take, with various difficulties.   

These Bighorn Sheep, DesertDale and Kitfoxgal saw on our trip through Challis,Idaho.  The desert big horn are at home in steep rocky mountains and foothills.  They were on the decline in the late 1930 but the population are about 750.  The bighorn are able to go 8 days without water.

This "Long-ear Owl", DesertDale shot this photo of it, When hiding in a tree on one of the walks.  You really had to look had to find her.  It took several tries but finally found  her, roosting for his night run. He hunts mostly at night.  They have 2 to 10 eggs.  Male brings food to female while she is carrying for the eggs.   

This just a view of one of the trails you hike on.  The stream of water lays through out the trail.

This cabin is made of railroad ties , seen on  the "Coyote Loop" trail.

This is a view of the back of the Visitors Center, it is seen on the "Jackrabbit Loop".  There are 5 trails with different difficulties.  Plus the birds are many.

Will be at this site a few more days.  The ride into the stores in Las Vegas is not far.
