We had business in the nearby village of Valemount the other day and while we were killing time in between appointments, we took Kona for a walk at the Cranberry Marsh/Starratt Wildlife Management Area that lies just south of the village. It was a rather gloomy day, but the mountain scenery was different than McBride so it was a nice change from our usual walks.
We only saw a handful of waterfowl in the marsh, but most of the water was frozen and the cattails are very thick so it was difficult to see what else might be lurking around, hidden from view. Driving home to McBride in the rain we saw many more waterfowl than at Cranberry Marsh, because there was a big flock of ducks grazing in a field near Dunster.
