Blog #6

One place that I can definitely aesthetically appreciate is John James Audubon State Park. This park was named after the John James Audubon, a famous American artist and naturalist. He was also very famous for his love of birds. Today, that park is not only a good place to appreciate nature but also the wildlife. When I was younger, my grandparents would take me there to the lake to fish or use one of the paddle boats. I enjoyed it because it was different from other parks. Instead of being out in the open around other things it was more secluded. I remember going down a windy road with huge, tall trees all around us. There weren't a bunch of playgrounds either. A few swings and slides but mostly it was trails and the lake. Instead of giving your attention to the material objects one usually finds in a park I gave my attention to the natural things around me. It helped me appreciate it more and it is still one of my favorite places to this day.

  1. Where is this park? I have been to an Audubon park in western Kentucky, but this looks like a different place.
