What a Country!

Gotta love an obese, lazy nation that creates the Drive-Through Nature Preserve. Went to Horicon Marsh this weekend and took the "Auto Tour". My only complaint is that it was too short! A mere three miles of paved roads (with gentle little speed bumps) through the wetlands uncovered many species of birds (and frogs, if you care to get out of the car for a bit) and plants.

Amazingly, most visitors were using the hiking paths and there were very few automobiles taking the road. If it had been a nicer day, I would have hiked, but it was rather cool and cloudy. I loved being able to putt through an ecologically sensitive area in a muscle car and not have to worry about locking it up or who was parking near it.
