|Our Hiwassee roadtrip group|
On a bag-lunch, "Not-so-far-afield" Roadtrip, we went on our annual adventure to the vicinity of Hiwassee Island at the confluence of the Hiwassee and Tennessee Rivers to look for sandhill cranes and bald eagles.
After a 90-plus mile trip to two secluded locations in Meigs County, our group found both: hundreds of sandhill cranes at Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge and seven eagles viewed from the Observation Platform at the Cherokee Removal Memorial Park (CRMP) at historic Blythe Ferry.
