The US is Super-duper Huge!

The Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge is just a 20 to 30 minute drive from
St. Paul and very close to the Mall of America, Bloomington , Minnesota . We wandered along the Minnesota river and around swamp areas in one of the areas of the Refuge, Wilkie Unit, Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge, Bloomington/Shakopee, Minnesota for a few hours, but we never saw any other humans. We only saw beautiful things of nature such as trees, the river, swamps, bald eagles, cardinals, Mallard ducks, Canada geese, and many other birds. Itís amazing that Minnesota keeps this wilderness so very close to big cities. In these huge areas of the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge, there are definitely way more animals and birds living there than humans. We intended to spot herons (big birds), which are supposed to be nesting there around this time, but on this day we failed to spot any herons; only "Heron Nesting Area" signs were often spotted along trails.  Some people say at the Blue Lake there are over 600 nests of herons!
