Ha Ha Tonka

Sunday afternoon, we headed out on a drive.  David knew where we were going but it was a mystery to me until I saw a sign for Ha Ha Tonka State Park.  I had never been there, and it had been about 15 years since David has.
 One of the main attractions at the park are the castle ruins from a great mansion that was built in the early 1900s and burned in 1942.
 It's had to imagine it as someone's home - and someone's vacation home at that!  It was huge!
 There is also a natural bridge at the park, the remains of a collapsed cave system.
 I thought this was so sweet, especially since it was done in chalk and not something permanent.
This is the Ha Ha Tonka spring.  The walking trail to it was a lush green and cool path.  So nice!

That's how we spent the first weekend of fall.  Lots of sunshine, fresh air, and time outside.  It was a wonderful weekend!
