Susan and Xuan:
Our mission was 10 National Wildlife Refuges and Fish Hatcheries, a time crunch of three weeks, in the beautiful states of Georgia and South Carolina. As we embarked into the south-east we quickly were embraced with southern hospitality enriched with culture and history. We were welcomed into Refuges with good spirits and helpful hints to their trail systems. We even had the opportunity to hike a few trails off the coast on islands. That was a neat experience which opened up the viewing of wildlife such as wild hogs, alligators, and the blue crane. With the positive energy surrounding us it was not difficult to keep a great attitude through times of luggage mishaps, embedded ticks, or weather conditions. As we wrap up Hitch 2 we are excited to move forward to new adventures, locations, and meet new managers.
