Goose Jurassic Park

We did a hike around a lake in Cuivre River State Park that was surrounded by wild flowers. I had to stop every few steps to take more pictures! The park began as a federal rec demo area in the 1930s created by the CCC and WPA.

I was impressed by how tall these plants were.

I found this cool snake skeleton.

We stopped by Hannibal, Missouri to do some fence whitewashing.

You can never get enough Mark Twain.

The six lakes of Wakonda State Park near La Grange, MO were created when Ice Age gravel deposits were mined for use in road surfacing. They were a great place to do a little kayaking.

Our campsite at Wakonda was very nice and right next to the water. But a predator lurked nearby.

There were geese everywhere and they were not very afraid of humans. You could tell that they had played this game before because they kept checking the fire pit for fallen food.

I find it kind of reassuring that the State Park Rangers are on patrol while we are asleep in our tents.
