A few weekends ago, we went up to Summit Lake State Park, about 45 minutes north of us. I had heard of the place, but always as a place for fishing. Wow, did we ever find MUCH more than that! This little muskrat was chowing down behind a wall of cattails.
It was a cold, blustery day, but there was still plenty of life everywhere we went.
They have a huge lake, plus several scattered smaller (more secluded) ponds as well.
We hiked the trail around the lake, through the woods, past a marsh and back through a meadow.
We will definitely be heading back to check out the other trails, but in the meantime, enjoy these bursts of life we encountered there.
