The first Sunday in October was too cool and beautiful to spend indoors, so after grading papers and doing the laundry I drove out to Osage Hills State Park. I’ve walked and mapped every trail in the park, along with almost every bushwhack, but today I did make one new discovery. It was dry enough that I could clamber down into the little creek just north of the park office, where I discovered a bench hidden amongst the foliage.
I also had fun clambering about the spillway area again, and sunned myself both on the big rock there as well as over on the bluffs of Sand Creek. The park was very peaceful, with few people out and about. I ended my stay with the highlight of the park, the little waterfalls on Sand Creek.
Enjoy the slideshow.
