A Picnic at Shelby Forest State Park
Picnics are my favorite things, and one day last month we took a bite to eat to Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park. We ate at a picnic area away from the lake at the edge of the woods.
We just grabbed a little something on the way -nothing elaborate:
After we ate, we drove down to Poplar Lake:
and spent some time observing the owl:
and the hawk:
at the Nature Center. The birds are injured and not releaseable and are used for educational programs at the park.
There are trails, but we didn't do any hiking this time. This park is about a 45-minute drive for us, and we just never go there. We have so many good picnic spots closer. I do want to go back soon to explore the trails.
