Nice Morning At Lake – Part 1

Was a nice morning for a drive, there was a chill in the air that felt good after the heat we had been having.  I wasn’t exactly sure where I wanted to go but I knew I wanted to see water and was hoping for some fall colors.  I got both, sort of.  I decided on Easter Lake, its on the outskirts of Des Moines and is a 172 acre lake thats full of walking and biking trails, trails through the woods, fishing, swimming, shelters for gatherings, boating.  It’s basically a good place to take the family or just go by yourself and enjoy some quiet time.  Once I started to drive around and stopping here and there I didn’t realize how big the park really was and I only covered half of it.  The place was full of wildlife, birds, geese, cranes etc, deer and raccoons. There was even a covered bridge that was a total suprise.  I plan to go back and explore the other side once the colors start to pop more.  But there was alot of people walking, bird watching, photographers, fisherman etc.  There was some color but not alot, it’s in the beginning stages. so hopefully before to long there will be alot more.  But enjoy the pics and I included a link to the park.     http://www.mycountyparks.com/County/Polk/Park/Easter-Lake-Park.aspx
