When we discovered that the fort we wanted to visit was not open until Memorial Day, we were left with a day off.  Duane had vertigo and I had a headache (both allergy related).  We opted to stay home and do a few chores--or not.  We took a walk on the sidewalk around the pond to see where it went.  

This pond is big enough to have a boat ramp.  People can buy their boats at Cabella's and take them for a test run here.  Unfortunately about 150 Canadian geese have decided that they's rather not migrate anymore and settled here.

Looking back at where I was standing.  In our walking around we found a large cage where shoppers can leave their dogs while they shop.

We also found this elk sculpture.  

Duane wanted to shop for hiking boots, so hung out.  I discovered that this store is the original Cabella's.  This is their first signature wildlife display.  I discovered that there is more there than can be seen with a casual look.

I've heard about but never seen a brown skunk.

These animals were hiding on the right side of the display.  Javelina, pheasants, rattlesnake, and more.

Left side.  See the wolves peeping through the moos antlers?

The walkway continued past the elk sculpture and curved back around the corral to the rv park.  A separate walk led to the corporate buildings and one continued to this natural garden.

There is a small building by the rv park which has restrooms, showers, a laundry and the registration office.  The office is not open.  You can pay using the night box, or go inside and pay at the check-out.

By the way, we did have a tremendous prairie thunderstorm yesterday and again this morning but no tornadoes or hail.  Lucky us.  

Time to move further north tomorrow.

I love when Paul wants to go to Cabella's. One of the Cabella's we visit has a huge aquarium. It is awesome. Some how we always leave with your wallets a bit lighter.
