A Great Day For a Hike....

Saturday was so nice out and no Wind! So Old Mill State Park it was! first of all it was a nice drive, id say about an hour away and fun to see the farmers in the growing fields and wild life out and about!

 loved the steps going upstairs in the corner..

lots of posted signs like this one telling about the forest, prairie, river and birds/animals..

 they had done lots of forest removal which i didnt like....

it was a nice hike and id like to go back and see the changes in the coming weeks!

enjoy your spring days my blog friends!!                     jody
