Lewis and Clark State Park weekend #5

We were originally going to be camp hosts for 4 weeks, but they don’t have a camp host for the last session and we were able to stay longer. This last weekend had no special events, but conservation was the theme at the amphitheater. Friday night was about recycling, Saturday night was endangered animals and Sunday was identifying trees/weeds/bugs. It was Megan’s last session as she’s going back to school. Some of the summer rangers will be doing the rest of the amphitheater series.

You can click on any of the pictures to enlarge them. 

Some of the kids (and adults I think) made Fort Flip Flop off of the beach area in some trees.  Someone made decorations. I guess the kids really enjoy it. 

It’s getting really dry, grass is turning brown. The nights are getting cooler and some of the trees (ash I think) are changing color. There’s a really pretty bush too that changing colors; I don’t know what it is (below pic). 

We noticed the water level is lower too. 

There was a missing boater one day and Ryan and Katie took the Park boat out to search their area. The people had spent a night stranded on a beach and hiked back to the area they were staying at.

Combining has started in the area. We went to Williston on Wednesday to Walmart and found the Little Free Library in town. 

Our last day here is Sunday, August 14th. For more pictures, please click here.
