April 29- Muscatatuck
This was a cool but somewhat sunny day, perfect for hiking in a national wildlife refuge. We got there about noon, which is not the time of day for viewing wildlife. The other problem is that this is an area with lots of swamps, so most of the hiking paths were quite moist. But we did hear lots of songbirds, saw many ducks. Even a raccoon was so kind to peek his head out of the hollow of a tree to check us out. And there were some very tall tulip, ash, red oak, and birch trees. All in all, a very pleasant change from the cities and towns we have been in. Tomorrow we head for St.Louis.
