Yesterday, Sam and I went to the Fremont Weir Wildlife Area for a mid-morning walk. The rural drive was quite peaceful and we had the pleasure of seeing many quail run across the road before us. The dog-friendly wildlife area is roughly 1,500 acres of brush, oaks, willows and cottonwoods. Hunting season for turkeys and pheasants had just started, so we chose to walk on the crown (top) of the levee in order to be visible to the hunters and their gun dogs, since we were not wearing any high visibility orange clothing. Of course, the best part was petting dogs.
