Landscape: Blue Spotting | Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge

A Break in a storm front over the Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge casts blue sky on the Nisqually River Marshlands.

DETAIL:
At the end of its 80 mile journey from Mt. Rainier where it starts as a glacial stream you can walk across, the Nisqually River terminates into a 7 square mile protected wetland known as the Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge. Pictured here, a break in a storm front moves off to the east while a fleet of ducks fly southwest across the refuge looking for a place to forage at low tide.
