Ouabache State Park
Thursday afternoon, we took a little jaunt to Ouabache (pronounced Wabash) State Park in Bluffton. It was a neat, little park. It had it's own bison herd, which included a baby just born at the end of August. The kids learned that Bison herds still roamed Indiana until the early 1800's. We then took a short hike around the lake, where I happened to see 2 small snakes (and screamed each time) and got to enjoy the beginning fall colors. The trail wasn't well marked, so we got off trail a few times, but never too far. We sandwiched the hike with some playground fun ... because my kids are always up to a little playground fun.
