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
