The preserve has two trails. One is about a mile called The Lost Wetlands Trail and a second one that's about 3 miles called The River Walk. Because it was already 7:30 when when we got there, we took the shorter one.
A lot of the area is swampy but lovely. None of the paddies are flooded this time of year so a lot of it is native grasses. In the spring and winter the paddies are flooded to encourage the Sand Hill Cranes to rest there on their migration.
We saw two cotton tail rabbits. This one was right outside the bathrooms and we were able to get really close before he hopped off.
Not sure what this is but it looks like some type of a hibiscus.
