We decided to take a quick trip to Raccoon Lake and although we come here occasionally, we’ve only hiked a few times.
We hiked trail 5. It is not adequately marked and we were “bewildered” several times as to where the trail actually went. This is another beef of ours with the Indiana State Park system. Even if there is not enough money to put up wooden signs, at least put out blazes or colored ribbons to mark the trail! We saw a total of 18 species with three new IBBY birds. ROC attracted his first tick of the season. Yuck!
We also hiked the Archery Trail which was fun to do. It is interesting and would be fun to do archery at the various stations along the way.
New IBBY Species:
