Morning quick shot at Cape Romain, South Carolina. On our way to a barrier island, 7/24/2022.
‘Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge, extending 22 miles along the South Carolina Coast, is a rich mosaic of barrier islands with forest and ponds, vast salt marshes and intricate waterways. This diverse and dynamic system supports over 293 bird species and a myriad of other wildlife. Over fifty percent of refuge lands are designated a Class I National Wilderness Area.’ (from the US Fish and Wildlife web site)
FYI here; a Class 1 ‘national wilderness’ area is extremely rare. Only a handful of locations meet the criteria. In short it’s a no people, no access, no touch by human hands, area. The official description is; The most intact, undisturbed wild natural areas left on our planet. There are 760 locations, most are in Alaska, USA.
