Donna Thalacker led a small group - just Kit Lane and Debbie Dye - on her last Refuge walk before she heads north. We walked the new "Tram" trail, about 2 1/2 miles, and saw many birds, plants, flowers, butterflies and two small snakes. We got a good look at a Northern Parula and some blooming orchids that Donna had spotted last time she was here. The bugs weren't a problem until we were discovered by some really huge, biting bug. If they were deer flies, they were deer flies on steroids!
