We met Erin and Rob at the Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge nestled deep in the Pine lands near the expansive Wharton Forest on this surprisingly warm winter day. We followed trails as they led us throughout the forest of pine trees to many secluded spots filled with all manner of interesting brush, rivers, and lakes. As we circled back to the refuge grounds, Erin, a senior wildlife educator at the refuge, brought out Squam, an owl she has developed a close relationship with who is blind one eye. He will never be able to live in the wild but he has been invited to the ring bearer at their wedding later this year! See their wedding that took place just around the corner from the refuge in our photos posted here!
