I went on a picnic today. The heat was unbearable, but the food was fantastic! It was at Shimmerhorn Park in Galena, Kansas. There was a pretty cool cave about a mile into the center of the park. The temperature was at least fifteen degrees cooler inside the cave; there was a small river running inside! The cave was meant to explore! I think I saw some baby stalactites!
There was also a nifty nature center at the top of a huge hill. They had snakes, turtles, bugs, and even… TARANTULAS! I also learned how to skip rocks! I managed to skip a rock three times in one throw.
It went great until I started having asthma problems; I made it through alive, though, so not to worry! I am looking forward to going to the fish hatchery tomorrow.
