On our second to last day on the west side of the park, we took a drive outside the park north on state highway 125. We stopped at the Arapahoe National Wildlife Refuge, which is a human made and maintained wetlands around the Illinois River. This photo was taken on our walk around the refuge. I love the contrast between the lush wetlands and the dry ridge in the distance.
