Today I took a walk around Old Mystery Point.

Walked down to the Manitou Metro North Station and found a Kennedy half dollar that had been quite flattened by a train. I wondered who put it on the tracks, and supposed they didn't find it afterwards because it flew off to the side. I'm always looking for interesting stones, so the coin caught my eye.

Wandered on various trails through the cool woodlands to the marsh where I saw so many turtles and frogs. The walk was a little over three hours, a mix of sunshine and cool shade.

The trails were all pretty narrow and wild, with plenty of fallen trees to climb over, or in this case, go under.

The Tulip trees were dropping flowers on the path.

Found these "devil" pods.
