As parks go, I found it a bit odd. Odd in the sense that the main "bike path" is attached to the main circle drive.
Which means that if you stay on said bike path, your views, a lot of the time, look something like this.
With the occasional traffic jam.
What is cool though, is that there are a bunch of little lakes in the area and you can get off of the main bike path and cruise along the mountain bike trails. They call them mountain bike trails/hiking trails, but in all honesty, I sort of felt like I was tresspassing on the mountain bike trail because there are some steep hills and turns with not a lot of room so if anyone happened to be riding their bikes it could have gotten ugly. We were on high alert!
The bugs were terrible in the woods here though. Deet didn't do a thing, either. It was really only this area - maybe we hit the motherload. The other trails we went on didn't seem to be as bad.
Here are some views of our outing.
Honestly, how cool is this fungus???????????????????????
They were all over this log!
Are you ready for a game that I like to call, "Find the insect!".
In all seriousness, what is it with boys, rocks, and water? They just can't help themselves.
Another cool thing about this park is that it is accessible from an actual 12 mile bike trail that runs from Indianola to Carlisle. Little man and I ventured on a little of it and found this cool bridge.
I love how nature always finds a way.
