Walk in the woods - KS style

We don't have many "woods" in the flatlands of Kansas but one of the nicest small areas for trees is found in Hutchinson at Dillon Nature Center. Fishermen, bird watchers, kids on school trips and dog walkers use this lovely area a lot. When I was in high school, it was called Dillon's Lake and was used for the employees of the grocery company. Later it was given to the city and has been lovingly developed by people who plant flowers. Most of it is left alone. . . with fallen trees and untrimmed foliage. There are several great sculptures, all made by local artists. We walk Wally there, always taking our little white plastic bags to leave the paths as we found them. Wish everybody did.
