Santa Ana Adventure from Susan Van Houweling

Just your average day in our life in southern Texas!! The Misfeldt's
and us went to the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge this morning.
We left home at 7:30 am and went for a stroll in the refuge to look
for wildlife. As you can see from the pictures we had one picture of
a cardinal and pictures of us. We argued over what path to take,and
we girls wondered if the boys were right! Well right after we took
their advice..... a helicopter came flying over and Elaine and I
thought the park was looking for us. Well I guess not!!!!







Now for the rest of the story...... As we continued to watch, the helicopter come closer. We saw someone running toward us. He was on a mission and at first,we thought he was with the Border Patrol. My mistake!!!! He was the one they were chasing. As he ran by us the helicopter got closer and threw dirt and dry leaves all over us. The men in the helicopter motioned to us which way did he go and Myron showed them. We all stood there looking at each other and thought we should of stopped him and Myron wished he would have taken some pictures. We later found out he had left his car at the visitor center.
Just a day in the VALLEY!!!!!!!
Susan
