The pictures I have today aren't the best. I only had my phone with me. It doesn't have the powerful zoom that my big camera does. It still did okay though. You can at least see the bison. I'll take my big one with me next time.
This was actually the closest bison I've seen at this place. They're usually much farther away. What you see in the pictures here is how I saw it. The zoom on the phone did just enough to match the eye. I was actually close enough that this creature could hear me talk. It knew I was there.
I saw many more good things this day. Some I'll share with you soon, and some that I just won't have time. So some things will unfortunately only ever be seen by me. I wish I had time to share everything. So many good everyday adventures make it all so fun though.
Anybody could do this. That's what I keep saying. But not anybody does it. I do. I wish everybody with the resources would try. These everyday adventures give me so much peace of mind. I always come away refreshed and ready for the world again. And ready for nature again. I'll talk to you later.

Parks like this with big concrete trails are places that welcome as many people as they can get. My aunt goes here quite often. I never knew this was the place she was telling me about until I discovered it myself.
I only have two pictures of these trails because too many of the same thing can get monotonous. (Wait! I've added one more just for fun.) Big everyday trails like these sometimes tend to look the same in too many pictures.
This park isn't the only place to find this kind of trail around here. Sioux City is full of walking and biking trails. The whole place is made for walking and exploration. I read a few years ago that they might try a trail system like this at Detroit's riverfront, but I'm not sure if they were ever able to do it.
And maybe my post of the pictures of this new park make it seem like I'm disappointed in this new park. That's not so at all. These big trails aren't all that's here. The big trails are just the beginning. I'll show you what else I found in a future post. It'll be fun. I'll talk to you later.
