Owl Trail to Resaca Loop Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge is a 2088-acre refuge established for the protection of migratory birds, and is one of the few remaining examples of the semitropical thorn forest that once covered the entire region of the lower Rio Grande delta. By the time the refuge was created in 1943, much of the original thorn forest habitat dominating the Lower Rio Grande Valley had begun to disappear, and the federal government thought it prudent to make native habitat set-asides a priority. If only the same could be said of our politicians over half a century later."
--E. Dan Klepper, 100 Classic Hikes in Texas (The Mountaineers Books).
