Bosque del Apache – Part 2 – 2019

Nov 29, 2019

Our season at Bosque del Apache is coming to an end.  Some friends have already left, and we will be leaving next week.  But the place is just as magical as it has always been for us, and we will be coming back again next fall!

Cranes and snow geese are almost everywhere!

Of course, where there is food there will be predators, some large, some small.

Of course, the wonderful people at Bosque del Apache make all the difference!

And so, we prepare to leave Bosque del Apache, but plan to return…

We will spend the winter months at Desert Gardens RV Park south of Florence, AZ.
