Oakes Quarry

One of our favorite places to walk is Oakes Quarry. It’s a reclaimed limestone quarry that has the most interesting landscape.

Last night, the Scouts decided to meet there for a social distance walk / get together after not seeing each other for months. I joined along so that I could take photos.

Instead of staying with them, I took off, walked, and explored without the rest of them.

The quarry is located near an Air Force base. Last night a lot of planes were either coming into the base or leaving the base.

Those ponds disappear when there hasn’t been a lot of rain. I’ve been to the quarry when there has been very little rain. Instead of having those beautiful ponds, it’s dry land.

We had been there a week earlier and had found this stream full of tadpoles. So cool! I went back there last night. There were still tadpoles there but fewer than last week.

I am so fortunate to have this cool park to walk around and explore. You never know what you are going to find when you walk through this park.

Have a magical day,
Traci
