We stayed two days in the State Park. It surrounds a lake formed by a dam built in 1967. The lake was low while we were there. The lake can at full capacity hold of over a billion gallons of water.
When we opened the cabinet this is what we found. If you don't get sound click the speaker in the bottom right corner to unmute the gif.
Our site had a good view of the lake.
Today we decided to walk to the trail of dinosaur tracks that had been found in the park.
Just as we started the walk, Shawna asked if the bird on a pole was eating a fish. It was and as we watched, we could see that it seemed to be a young eagle.
The park is known to have eagles along with many other birds. They also have Mule Deer, Antelope, Coyotes, Badgers, and foxes.There are signs of warning of bear activity on the bear box trash containers.
Trophy Bass! Looks interesting.
The wind was a bit fierce today. As we were crossing the dam, my hat blew off. It was a scramble down the embankment about 50 feet but I got my hat back.
On to the Dino Tracks.
The tracks are well preserved considering they have been exposed for over 37 years.
On our return as we crossed the dam, Shawna noticed two deer on the far end of the dam. Next, we noticed several more at the base of the dam. They all gathered together at the base and walked off into the woods. They did not show any sign of being concerned that we were there, just that we did not get close.
To get a guess of the size of the deer, look at the size compared to the bench in one of the photos. Mule deer are not small deer.
The wind was very strong and we were glad to be down by the lake and not up on the ridge exposed to the full force of up to 40 mph. Oh and the humidity was at 13%. Wow! It was dry.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
