ralph b. clark

 
 Natalie has begun her softball practices already and we are blessed enough to have them at the lovely Ralph B. Clark Regional Park. Before practice started, we visited the lake and we were both pretty pleased at seeing water lilies for the first time. Afterward, while she learned plays, pitches, bunts, etc. I got to wander around a bit...
 
The park is filled with jackrabbits and squirrels, everywhere! I had a lot of photos but the zoom on my camera phone is not that great. Just pretend in all these photos, there are sweet little creatures hiding everywhere (which they were)!
 
It also has plenty of nice spots for picnics as well as some volleyball courts too.
 
They have a stage area which you can rent out and near it is the Interpretive Center. It's small but the animal bones found inside are quite big. They have mammoth bones as well as skeletons of other animals that were native to the area from thousands of years before. I never knew a giant sloth was, well, so gigantic!
I am hoping to score more pretty photos from this place but all in all, you can't beat a beautiful park...

I can't wait to show Benjamin the giant ground sloth--we are huge sloth fans around here.

Yetis. Sloths.

We are equal-opportunity living things lovers.
