> At some appropriate time we hooked up the odometer again to show some

> realistic mileage and delivered the car to Brownsville early in the

> local bus (an old rounded bus like they used to have in Seattle in the

> 60's) stopping occasionally to drop off someone on a farm road.

> The bus was packed with what is currently referred to as "brown people",

> Curtis and I got off at our crossroad - to Santa Ana National Wildlife

> Refuge - about a seven miles south hike with our backpacks pretty full. It

> was a dark night, but as our eyes adjusted we noted that we were passing

> through Orange groves - perfectly ripe although the skins were still green.

> Feasting along the way, we came across Sugarcane fields - also ripe - and

> ate plenty of that too. Off in the not so far distance a pack of big deep

> voiced dogs started barking - uh oh - but we continued quietly down the

> road, arriving at Santa Ana. It was dark and we set our tent up outside the

> gate.

>

> Packing up early, we were packed up before the refuge workers showed up -

> all very nice folks who had no problem with us camping outside the gate,

> off the road. We spent a couple of nights.

>

> Well there we were at famous Santa Ana, although not as famous as now. No

> paved trails (I just checked the website) or viewing towers, or people

> either - we only saw about 4 people their each day. Yup, it was just dirt

> trails through the Spanish-moss covered Texas brush.This won't be a total

> laundry list of all the birds we saw, but did get to see Least Grebe, the

> funky Chachalaca's, Green Jays, and loud Kiskadee Flycatchers all over the

> place.

>

> The trails were replete with the giant webs of Golden Silk Spiders - big

> gnarly things- the webs about 3 ft across and walking into one is somewhat

> akin to walking into a badminton net - they are pretty strong, We were

> lucky to come across several big Indigo Snakes - supposedly the longest

> North American snake- coiled neatly like stacks of black garden hose.

> Armadillos rooting around.

>

> At night, by the tent, the glowing eyes of Pauraques calling from the road,

> and a magic show of fireflies in the woods. Great.

>

> Next on the agenda was Galveston, where Curt's Aunt and Uncle lived. Very

> nice people, they loaned us a car and we got to see all sorts of cool birds

> and the largest snake I've ever seen out side a zoo - a giant Western

> Diamondback Rattlesnake which stretched nearly clear across one lane of the

> main island road - nearly 8 ft long and thick. We encouraged it off the

> road from a safe distance. The telephone wires along this road were loaded

> with Scissor-tail Flycatchers.At night Common Skimmers lit up in the

> headlights.

>

> Next stop Greenwich Connecticut and New England, but that's a whole other

> story. Looking up Santa Ana, I did note a site re: The Border Wall and the

> refuge, but after hearing all the outrageous news out of McAllen I was

> already depressed. "I need to hear someone with some soul" I thought, so I

> cranked on the Staple Singers and after a few tunes I felt a little

> better,.Just sayin'.
