I've always wanted to visit this preserve, today was the day. I wanted to go much earlier, but my wife scheduled The Room Store to come and get our sofa for a repair :gun: , they arrived at 10:45 and I was on the road by 11:00.

With my windows down and RUSH in the CD player, I was like a ghost rider on my way to some solitude. This was an awesome area, funny I was the youngest person here, by at least 20 years ;) , I felt a bit out of place, and I could feel the stares and I heard whispering as I walked around :lol: Just kidding, the people were delightful.

I was thinking that the birds were all hiding, but eventually I found some areas with American Robins and others fussing about. I heard of Blue Jay's being seen yesterday, but I did not encounter any, the lady said early mornings are best for seeing them. I did see some water birds, a turtle and a cool hawk in a tree.

For me, it was all about being away....and enjoying time alone, this was my happy place.

How To Put Out a Campfire
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
