On Labor Day my husband and I were in the mood for an adventure. So we packed a lunch and took a drive. Our destination was the Dunnville State Wildlife Area located about 40 miles from our home. This was our first time visiting, so we weren't sure what to expect, but we knew the Red Cedar State Trail went through the wildlife area. We hoped to take a hike and see some beauty.
This is a railroad bridge that crosses the confluence of the Red Cedar River and the Chippewa River.
This was our view from one side of the bridge. If I would have been brave enough to peer over the side of the bridge with my camera, you would have seen a small sandbar. We were able to stand on the bridge and watch a turtle make its way up the sandbar and then bury itself in the sand. Soon, just its head was sticking out of the sand.
This is the view from the other side of the bridge. The next picture is that large expanse of beach.
After walking along this path for a while, we turned around and went down to the beach. We had the entire beach to ourselves.
Thanks for joining us on our excursion! Next time I'll share some pictures from our last stop of the day at the Devil's Punchbowl.
Have a great weekend!
