Weekend Wisdom: Psalm 23:2

Join me in sitting for awhile at Alderfer-Oenslager Wildlife Sanctuary. Enjoy the peace and rest before a new work week begins.

He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,

Psalm 23:2

Tour de Parks: Alderfer-Oenslager Wildlife Sanctuary

Last week, I got in my new used car and headed south to visit Alderfer-Oenslager Wildlife Sanctuary and Wolf Creek Environmental Center. I have been itching to walk this as part of the Tour de Parks but life just kept interrupting.

It was a beautiful late summer day and the scenery was gorgeous, even though the heat has taken a toll and fall is setting in. I walked the 1/2 mile wetland trail but plan on being back once fall color takes hold, and walk the woodland trail.

Ready, let’s head down the path by the green and red trees.


What is that tree with red on it? I do not know but boy did I have a fun shooting pictures of it. I love the color combination of red, green against the blue sky.

See, I told you I had fun taking pictures of the trees.           😉

Now on down the path we go to the environmental center. I left the center with plenty of pamphlets so I can start planning the 2016 Tour de Parks.




This is on the other side of the environmental center. It is here that I leave you to explore this serene place. That is the shadow of my head and it will have to suffice as my selfie for this walk.

Enjoy the slideshow and be still and know that He is God. 



A Hump Day Smile

Yesterday was a busy day.  I had the job search group meeting, an interview and got my ancient modum replaced.  So I did not get a post ready for today.

On OgleOhio you will find a picture I took while at  Alderfer-Oenslager Wildlife Sanctuary on Sunday.  There will be a new picture every Tuesday and Friday for the next several weeks.   So hop on over and see yesterday’s picture, then stop back on Friday for a new one.

Below is a picture also taken at the sanctuary but will not be appearing on OgleOhio.com.  Enjoy and see you tomorrow.
