There are 2 bison in the park.
On the other side of the bike path is a canal that’s higher than where we were standing.

Fall Colors & An Elephant

Many of the trees have already lost their leaves, but a few are still displaying some great colors. That includes the ones near the elephants at the Amsterdam zoo (called Artis).

Rained Out Hike

Near the ocean today, we had plans to watch a full moon rise tonight. It seemed appropriate for Halloween and the weather was supposed to be clear. So we hiked into the sand dunes, started unpacking our chairs to sit and watch the moon, when it started raining.

We hiked back to the parking area and sat under cover to enjoy our evening picnic. We had the entire place to ourselves! It was a unique Halloween.

A Fox In the Dunes

The fox

Today in the dunes, we were at hill Mt. Brian (named after me, but for no real reason). While relaxing at the top of Mt. Brian, we had a Fox visit us and steal a spoon. We got it back, but we had to keep clapping and yelling at the fox to go away. We’re pretty sure he has gotten used to people feeding him, but we didn’t want to encourage it. At least he didn’t try to take the champagne!
