This park's best feature was a cool statue. It is very beautiful and strange. I guess it used to have a reflecting pool out in front, more figures, and Chief Tomokie used to hold a spear.

Wow! What an amazing tree. From the pictures, it is difficult to get a sense of scale, but this tree was massive, and hundreds, if not thousands of years old. The plaque said it was 2,000 years old, but I didn't think oak trees lived quite that long. Take a look!
Wanted to see this place before Christmas, but maybe it was a good idea to go after because it was crowded enough as it was! Definitely worth the trip though. Inside, it was 9 degrees. I have never been in 9 degrees before. What a strange feeling! Spent a bit of time inside taking photos, otherwise the cold may have pushed me through the rooms very quickly. If you have never heard of this place before...all of this is made of ice!
A special start to the new year when I just happened to see the moon halo tonight. Apparently the same phenomenon happens with the sun, but is much more difficult to photograph (for obvious reasons). This was pretty tricky to photograph too. I had to spend over an hour to get these shots.
