This little guy was playing hide and seek in the field of cone flowers. He was very careful not to go to far from mom. She was keeping a close eye on me. We ended up having a pretty nice day yesterday. The sun would come in and out and tease us. Some how we ended up missing the rain. I am thinking we are not going to be so lucky today. The high yesterday was 61º with a low of 45º.
The park service asked us to pass along the following information. The upper lot at the Alum Cave parking lot will be closed from August 26th- September 13th. They will be paving the lot and adding spaces. The lower lot, near the bathroom, is still open. If you have any questions regarding this information, please call the park service.
