This week's travel post will be short and sweet, as it was just a little stop at this beautiful park in Merrillan, Wisconsin after we finished our hike at Wildcat Mound which I showed you in last week's travel post. I thought about including these photos in last week's post, but I didn't want the post to get too long. I don't know about you, but I really dislike long blog posts. I get impatient with the length, and end up just scrolling fast through the post, and not get much out of it; so, I try to keep my blog posts as short as possible when I can.
As I said above, we were just driving home from our morning hike at Wildcat Mound, and we saw this pretty park and waterfall. Well, of course we had to stop and check it out and take some photos and videos.
I have never in my life seen such a pretty, natural looking waterfall that is actually a dam. And the icing on the cake is that the city took advantage of this beauty and made it a park. Usually dams are very industrialized, and have a lot of fencing around them for safety. This dam just took our breath away!
Of course all the fall colors, fountain grass, and fallen leaves added to the beauty of the dam.
The water falls into a gentle river that I can just imagine children wading in on warm summer days.
And now here are a couple of really short, dorky videos. I debated on whether I should even post them or not, but I really love the sound of the waterfall and how videos capture things photos cannot. So have a good chuckle as you watch!
Next week I'll be back with a fall trip to a state park in Minnesota!
Have A Great Day! Amy

What a gorgeous spot! I feel like we have been busy with just resting on weekends lately that we haven't taken the time to get out there and enjoy nature's beauty!ReplyDelete

What a beautiful place to hike. I love little videos, as one really gets to know a person's demeanor in just a short clip.ReplyDelete
It is. I'm glad you enjoyed the silly little videos. I agree, they add so much more than photos, that's why I decided to include them even if they weren't perfect.Delete
I always have loved the look of a spacious flowing field. Something I don't get to see often living in city limits but there are so many wonderful walks and hikes when one wants to explore. Once I get a better camera I think you've inspired me to do posts like this too!ReplyDelete
Yes, there is such a unique beauty to them. Where I live, I am surrounded by flowing fields. I'm glad I inspired you. I can't wait to see your posts.Delete
