The Everyday Adventurer is back with a vengeance! What? You say I wasn't gone? Oh, but I was. My presence here was down to a very minimum. Exhaustion because of boring normal city life had limited my presence here and at my beloved nature areas to almost nothing.
I have now decided to fight that awful demon of concrete and steel with every inch of my soul. Nothing can stop me now. I may lose a few battles, but I will win the war. I will emerge victorious and bring justice to the love of nature that wants to emerge from deep within my heart.
So now, on with the spectacle, on with the show. Let's begin a great journey, and see where it goes!
I was almost to the back of Carpenter Lake Nature Preserve, and there was a hill leading further to the rear of the park. I had to find out where it lead. Oh, I forgot I just said it lead to the back. But what was back there? Let's find out.
As I reached the top of the hill, I saw something in the distance. It was some sort of structure. It looked like a wrought iron fence, similar to the one that surrounded the dam. Just to the right of the fence was something else completely.
It looked like a stack of huge boxes. It was hard to see since everything was covered in snow. What could be in these boxes? Why was there a fence there? I was very curious to see what these things were, so I had to move closer and investigate.
I was right! It was a fence and some boxes. I had some good pictures of the boxes, but they seem to have disappeared into the ether. In the boxes were more pieces of fencing. They clearly aren't done building this fence, but why?
This fence marks the very back of the nature preserve. On the other side of the fence was that awful beast, civilization! It looked like one of those dreaded things they call neighborhoods. I hoped I wouldn't see any of those hairless apes that live in the buildings there. They so often mean trouble.
I hoped that extra fencing was there to keep those apes out of here. They always scare me. Wait! What was that? Did I see something moving out there? I'm not going to stay and find out! With that, I bounded off into the trees up ahead and to the left. Now safely hidden in my forest, I'm going to go home and rest. It's been a long day.
