Shakamak in the Spring...

We visited Shakamak State Park with Candace's family on Saturday, 8th April. We went to an interesting presentation on invasive plant species at one of the shelter houses and then had a lovely walk through the state park. :)

 Couldn't quite identify this turtle sunning itself.
 This is a midland painted turtle, though.
 Walking along a tree-lined avenue.
 Interesting carving on a tree.
 Looking up at the trees.
 Paper-like bark of the birch tree.

 Pretty scene.
 Fungi growing on a tree.

The vine has been removed but you can see how it has shaped this tree.
Trees growing in a pretty glade.
