DeSoto NWR, Missouri Valley, Iowa: As spectacular as the sight of hundreds of thousands of wintering snow geese is, one should not overlook some of the other unique experiences at DeSoto Refuge. Travel back in time at the visitor center’s display of artifacts salvaged from the wrecked steamship Bertrand, which sank in 1865; scan the waters for strange and primordial paddlefish; file your nails on the horsetail rush, an ancient plant with a heavy concentration of silica.
