It was a beautiful day last Sunday,
so we checked out the
Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park.
It was built in 1913
to provide hydroelectric power.
Now it's used for recreation
and education only.
I got a bit of vertigo looking down
at the foaming water.
There were people fishing everywhere.
But the real reason we went is that
the visitors center
was feeding their reptiles,
and my girl loves reptiles
Here is a map turtle being fed.
Bye for now!
