The first thing that intrigued both me and Mom was this:
Doesn't it look all kinds of interesting? I could explore in there for a long, long time! We had the whole park ahead of us, though, so we kept going after a bit of snoofing around.
Mom spotted a burst of berry red in some bushes. She tried to get a good shot, but there wasn't enough contrast. I did what I could to help the situation:
|"No need to thank me, Mom!"|
Before too long, I came across what I thought was a sliding board! I love sliding boards!
|"Cool! Look, Mom! A sliding board!"|
Mom said it wasn't a sliding board, that I'd get a major league owie if I tried it out, and that it was part of something called a par-course. I'm all for exercise and trying new things, but I decided to skip that.
Speaking of skipping things... here's something very new in the park:
Isn't that nice? Mom always comes with plenty of bags in her pockets, but it's nice that it's there if you need it. Oh. Why did I mention "skipping"? Because guess what I found not 5 feet away from the bag dispense-o-matic? Yep. How much easier could they make it? And yet ...
OK. Let's move on.
We came to another station of the par-course next:
|"Oh, yeah. Yeah, I know what this one's for!"|
I fell back on my military training. Now that I've said that, do you know what this station is all about?
|"Let me get into position! Spot me, Mom, OK?"|
Exactly. It's a Chin Up Bar. They have a bar for us medium-sized guys and a shorter bar for smaller pups and kit-cats. Everyone needs exercise!
I banged out about 50 chin ups, then we got hiking again. I made a really cool discovery just moments later!
|"Look, Mom! A stick!"|
