Ocmulgee

We went to the Ocmulgee National Monument on Sunday. We climbed to the top of the Great Temple Mound and then took a hike across the swamp and through the woods. It was nice to spend some time together after being apart at work and school for most of the week.

Walking toward the Earth Lodge


At the top of the Great Temple Mound





Looking for fish (we only saw bugs)


I imagine that we scared most of the wildlife away, but we did spot this box turtle (he was clearly not happy to see us!)...



and Henry found this toad!


Here we were almost back to the visitor center after more than a mile of walking:
