Ft. Des Moines Park has a special place in my heart, as it was the place where our homeschool journey really took off. Recent years have been a struggle when considering all of the talk about changing the park.
Today, the boys and I searched for a geocache at the park. We saw commas flying (and resting) in a nice vibrant orange, checked on one of the ruins and found a badger sett, and generally had a nice time. This is a great time of year to hike.
It is difficult to understand the size of a sett until you see one. The holes are just too big to be anything else. Everyone was too chicken to stand near the hole for scale. I think the boys were remembering _Incident at Hawk's Hill_. We've seen much larger ones at Southwoods Park.
