O'Bannon Woods State Park...

We arrived at O'Bannon Woods State Park just before lunchtime on Sunday, 24th June. We enjoyed a picnic lunch outside the Nature Centre before browsing inside. We then went for a brief walk before heading back home. O'Bannon Woods State Park has a very impressive Nature Centre - especially in terms of live reptiles on display, like this alligator snapping turtle at right. Riaan loved it!

 The timber rattlesnake looked quite threatening.
