I stopped off at Shades State Park to refresh and recharge after spending the past two days presenting at the Women’s Wellness Weekend at Turkey Run State Park.
I walked trails 9 and 1 Just short trails but needed to have some time alone. I did run into five ladies from the WWW who had attended our workshops and walks. Had a great talk with them.
And as I walked along the lower part of Trail 1, I met up with a couple who saw a chipmunk attack a snake. The snake lost – the chipmunk bit its head off!
The Canada geese have again made a nest under the observation platform at Prospect Point. Parent was sitting on the nest. Interestingly, there were two eggs back off the platform behind the “Hiker” sign. Curious.
