Getting away

It was nice to get away recently and spend a few days relaxing with family at Chickasaw State Park.   The park is a rustic place, not too far from home, where one can be out in nature enjoying walking trails, picnics, camp fires, and a variety of lake activities.

Stirring up the Snow Geese

The Snow Geese are back at Reelfoot Lake, and the Bald eagles are keeping an eye on them in hopes of acquiring an easy meal.  Whenever a lookout detects a threat from an eagle, a call goes out to the rest of the flock, and the Snow Geese take flight.

“If you feel the urge, don’t be afraid to go on a wild goose chase.  What do you think wild geese are for anyway?”  ~Will Rogers
