As refuges go it is on the small side at 2774 acres. In addition to the riparian habitat along the river, there are large areas of ponds and wet meadows, and some forested slopes of the Selkirk mountains.
We started with a hike up the Myrtle Falls Trail which leads up to a small waterfall system. We crossed below the falls on a long pedestrian bridge. Teri looked down at the stream and said that it looked like a good place for a Dipper.

We came across a funny little Snowshoe Hare while we were on the trail. It wanted so badly to get past us, and wanted to be on the trail. It hopped and scampered around like a little kid, on and then off the trail.
