Recently I went with Z
to a large park on the outskirts of town.
While he was off running
like a billionty miles,
I took a long hike with my camera.
This particular park is interesting.
It has ponds, paved trails,
a disc golf course,
a lake, mountain bike trails,
a soccer park, hiking trails on the bluffs,
& lots of wildlife.
Attached to the park is CALM,
a small zoo that mostly houses
creatures native to this area,
but lots of migrating birds & other
various animals tend to visit the area, too.
In addition to the CALM animals,
the park is home to hundreds of cats.
Evidently it is a popular place to
abandon felines, but don't worry;
there is a group that comes every
evening & leaves them dishes of cat food.
There are also large numbers of peacocks.
Definitely not your typical park.
