I have two things to talk about today. The first one is the announcement of the winners of the Count The Geese game yesterday. This part is tough for me because everybody deserved to win, and there were a few of you who came very close. But what I asked was to count the number of geese. So here is the list of you who guessed the correct number.
Thank you to everyone who played the game. I hope you all liked it.
Now on to what I did all day yesterday! This is something I do sometimes so I can keep this site fresh. I go out and search for new fun things to write about. I did this last winter and found three new nature parks, and several other good things I have yet to write about.
The picture above is one of two places with nature trails that I discovered yesterday. The place in the picture looks promising. The only problem is that it's right next to a shooting range. I doubt I'll ever see very many animals here, but it will be fun to explore.
I forgot to get pictures of the other place. I'll have them soon enough because I'll be going back to that one in a few days. It's much closer to my house than this one. It's actually a state park with extensive nature trails. I can't wait!
This is Orchard Lake. I was driving past this one. I couldn't actually find a place to stop and look at it, so I took three pictures while I was moving. This is on a very narrow twisting turning road that passes in between two lakes. One wrong move and my truck would have been underwater.
One more thing I wanted to show you. This one isn't really nature related, but it is a fun adventure. This is a place where they offer train rides for a small fee. There are several different deals. As you can see on the picture, you can have dinner on this train. I guess it's a moving restaurant.
You can do everything from riding for an hour or two, to going all night and even sleeping on the train. If you want to have a fun experience of riding a train, this is for you. I'll probably go on the short trip to try it out. It might be fun.
That was some of my day today. It was every bit as fun as getting in a fight with a squirrel army. Hey, that was fun too. If you don't believe me, do a search for squirrels here on the blog and find out. I'll talk to you tomorrow.
