Chain O Lakes State Park isn’t necessarily thought of as a wildlife hotbed, but I discovered more than my share of animals during a recent visit, from an insane bird who kept fighting with my car’s rearview mirror to raccoons who emerged in the dark and stole the food we had accidentally left out.
The scenery was a lot more spectacular than I expected, so I’ve decided to share a photo essay from the park. Enjoy.
Birds clearly do not understand mirrors. I spent about 30 minutes inside my tent watching this cardinal repeatedly slam itself against my rearview mirror. Endless entertainment:
Have you ever visited Chain O Lakes?
