As I was fiddling with learning about Picasa3 this afternoon, I decided to look at my photos from last summer. I picked several of the photos out to see if I could upload them in a folder all concerning Swan Lake National Wildlife Refuge. I wanted to be able to use Picasa to upload pics to the blog rather than “my pictures.” I think I’ve figured it out, so I’ll do a little blast from the past about Swan Lake NWR tonight.
Swan Lake National Wildlife Refuge is located just outside the small community of Sumner, MO.
Maxie, the World’s Largest Goose, is located in a park in the town of Sumner. She also happens to be a weather vane that rotates around as the wind blows. The funny thing about this being the goose capitol of the world, is that there are no longer any Canada geese here. Some were imported from the golf courses of Kansas City last summer, to the refuge, to try to establish a resident population on the refuge.
People also had an interesting way of displaying their catfish catches! This guy was about four and a half feet long! I don’t know why they nail them to the telephone post that way. ?
One of the local residents that came to give a talk on being a mountain man. Not too many mountains in Missouri. :)
Interesting billboard outside of Hannibal. Missouri is an interesting place. :)
I accidentally hit the publish button before I finished this post. :( I wanted to say that I think I've figured out how to use Picasa3 to upload the photos I want to post for a blog post.
Also, I was just thrilled today, when I took Emma on her first outs this morning, to hear an elk bugling in the woods across from the campground. Both she and I stopped dead in our tracks in the early morning light! How cool is that?
Thanks for stopping by....talk to you later, Judy
