We all piled into the HR-V, fastened our seat-belts, then headed down the road. As we were about to get onto I-70, we saw a beautiful sunrise:
We went through a lot of country that looked like this:

Isn't our adopted home state beautiful? Speaking of beautiful -- check this out:
We thought it looked like snow clouds ahead! Sadly, they weren't -- or at least the snow never made it to the ground.
Despite that huge disappointment, we continued on and landed here:
|Quivira National Wildlife Refuge!|
Yes, Quivira National Wildlife Refuge, also known as Mom's happy place. Here's a look at the Little Salt Marsh:
And here is one of the little ponds:

Mom and Dad saw all kinds of wonderful birdies! Mom hasn't even started processing her photos - I just took the ones off her iPhone for today's post. I mean, she GAVE them to me, it's not like I took them.
Speaking of giving things to me, at one of our rest-stops, Mom and Dad had sandwiches.
|"Look into my eyes ..."|
Correction - we ALL had sandwiches! Plus, Maggie and I had treats and water!
On the way home, we saw a little "fun with hay bales" in a farmer's field:

Maybe it's just me, but I would change their sign to "Hay, Merry Christmas". Wouldn't you? Ha roo woo roo!
|"Oh, Cam.... seriously?"|
Well, Mom thought it was funny.
Anyway, that's our big New Year's Day adventure! We'll let you know when Mom's birdie pix are up!
