We went to both ends of the refuge today. Lake Allen was closed. And we found out why when we were near the Little Patuxent River bridge. Apparently the shooting range was open because that is what we heard. They shooting was loud and just ominous sounding. I had to admin that I felt a little uncomfortable. Uncomfortable enough to call the Visitor’s Center to make sure it was normal!! I guess we haven’t been there when the range was open.
It was a beautiful day and the temperature was great near 70 degrees F.
