A walk in the park

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.

I love the old mill. When I was little, we used to go to the park and ride the train that rain along the river and through the mill. It was so cool!
