We decided to take a trip yesterday to see this park. It is beautiful and right on the Suwannee River. We had plenty of chances yesterday to see it and hike along it. It was a blast. We think now this would have been more suited for Rusty, but we left him home on this day. I don’t think we will do that again. Especially if we know we are going to be outside a lot. I just have to remember that he is still young, and I think it is Don more than Rusty that needs to be trained. We will get it worked out. He is our forever dog, and we are his forever people.
It cost $5.00 again to get into this park for day use, but I thought it was worth every penny of it. There are hiking trails, picnic grounds, bird watching opportunities, and we saw several boats, canoes, and fisher people. There is a very large rest area with bathrooms and showers. We were very impressed with this little park.
If I remember right there were two very large parking lots, and there is also a place for RV camping, but didn’t look very large. Not sure our 38’ fifth wheel would fit in, but there were lots of smaller RV’s there.
This was my favorite part of the day. We had just started walking down one of the trails when I saw a sign about bird watching. Within the next few steps I heard this beautiful fellow looking for his lunch. You could hear the familiar rat-a-tat-tat, and I knew immediately what was making the noise. Sure enough, he was on the side of a tree about 10 yards away from me. I couldn’t get really close without scaring him, but I think you can see that it is a Pileated Woodpecker. I just kept snapping, but couldn’t get a really clear shot at him. I love seeing them. We had lots of them on our place in Indiana.
This is just some shots of the trail we hiked. I hiked a little farther than Donnie. He does walks with Rusty every day, but his knee still bothers him from when he fell. I think he may have done more damage than he thought.
This a little farther up the trail. That pole in the middle picture showed how high the floods were for different years. If you look closely at the middle picture on the left, you can see it standing on the bank next to that large tree. It would have been 10 feet over our heads when flooded.
This was a fun outing and I would pay twice that to go back into this little park.
I am getting so disgusted with my carpeting. It seems like every day I am cleaning a new stain. Since we got Rusty I spend a lot of time just cleaning up little stains he seems to bring in. Don always wipes his and Rusty’s feet so I don’t know how it all happens. I am really leaning toward having hardwood floors installed. Does anyone out there know if this will work with 3 slide-outs? My main concern would be tearing the hardwood up when we put the slides out or in. It would be so much easier to take care of, and I think, look better.
