My annual trip to Bosque del Apache, National Wildlife Refuge is complete. I arrived home this past weekend. I drove 3100 miles round trip in my new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Loredo X. By the way, when I say “annual” that was pre-COVID. In 2020 I did not go to Bosque because of the virus and it was very strange not to be in New Mexico around Thanksgiving. While things are not completely normal, the Refuge management DID grant me a commercial permit for this year (necessary for leading photo workshops on federal wildlife refuge property) and if they were willing to issue the permit, I was willing to go.
