Welcome to Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Vian, Oklahoma.
You can hike their nature trails or drive their auto route… or both! I couldn’t believe all the wildlife I saw at Sequoyah NWR! There’s lots of water here, which is great for migrating birds and waterfowl!I saw thousands of snow geese and tons of ducks!This kingfisher let me take his picture!I saw a muskrat, but obviously there are beavers here!I saw hawks and eagles, and even this eagle nesting!I had a great time exploring at Sequoyah NWR. This was one of the best wildlife stops in my trip. With almost 21,000 acres to explore near where the Arkansas and Canadian Rivers meet – you’re bound to see something! And it’s Mr. Pish Approved!
Welcome to Red Rock Canyon State Park in Hinton, Oklahoma.
There I was, driving along pretty farm country when BAM! The road started going down and the next thing I knew I was in a beautiful Red Rock Canyon!There are lots of cool things to explore here!Some people go climbing or camping or just hiking.They have really nice picnic areas here too. Red Rock Canyon was really fun to explore! You can ride your bicycle here or go hiking or use the swimming pool during the summer. It’s a great place to go for a walk…and don’t forget to bring your dog! It’s Mr. Pish Approved!
Welcome to Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm in Dayton, Ohio.
At Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm, I got to explore inside and out, and discovered so many neat things.
It’s not just about birds!
I had a fantastic time in the Discovery Center.Where else could I meet a badger up close?Over at the farm, I met so many different animals, including goats, sheep, chickens, pigs and even a cat! And who could forget this handsome fellow?Of course, there are birds, too! I must have seen 10 different kinds in the short time I was there. Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm has walking trails and bird watching, and the Discovery Center is just amazing. I can’t wait to go back! It gets the Mr. Pish Approved Stamp for sure!
Welcome to Carillon Park & the Wright Brothers Aviation Center in Dayton, Ohio.
Carillon Park kept me interested for hours! I got to see lots of Dayton history, including the Wright Brothers, many other cool inventions, and lots more! This is the Newcomb Tavern. It was built in 1796!!Did you know that the Wright Brothers were from Dayton, Ohio?
Can you believe they actually got this plane to fly? I don’t think I’m that brave!This house was built out of limestone back in 1815. Does anyone know what time it is by any chance? Can you imagine if your mail carrier delivered your mail in this?!
I enjoyed stepping back in time at Carillon Park! I even got to pretend I was helping the Wright Brothers invent their planes. Now that’s super cool and Mr. Pish Approved!
Welcome to U. S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Talk about fun! You can hike or bike or climb or paddle! There’s so much to do here, I don’t know where to start!
This rafting course is all man-made. Our Olympic athletes train here!Here is part of the course. You can rent kayaks here too! Or you can climb their really cool rock wall!
Make sure to stop in at the Visitors’ Center! I got to sit in a kayak there!
When I visited, the water wasn’t running.
But lots of people were walking and biking the trails around the park!
I had a great time exploring the U.S. National Whitewater Center. It was fun walking where Olympic athletes had been! There’s so much to do here, come on down and get outside! My favorite part is that pets are welcome!
It’s Mr. Pish Approved!
Welcome to Clayton Lake State Park in Clayton, New Mexico.
At Clayton Lake State Park you can see ancient dinosaur tracks!
There are over 500 of them recorded here!
You can go for a nice walk around the reservoir.That will lead you to the Dinosaur Trackway!!!!Look at the size of that fossilized dinosaur print!
Here’s a whole trail of dinosaur tracks! If you look at the hillside, you’ll notice tons of lava rocks from a volcano!
There’s lots to do at Clayton Lake State Park: fishing, hiking, bird watching, boating and of course discovering dinosaur tracks! My favorite part is that pets are welcome! Clayton Lake State Park is definitely Mr. Pish Approved!
There’s lots to do at Wolf Park! You can watch the wolves play, take pictures and learn things from wolf experts!Wow. What a pretty wolf!Wolves play a lot like dogs do. Sometimes they’ll run and chase and jump like I do!I even got to see them roll around & howl. It was fun watching them!Click on the howling wolf below to watch a quick video of wolves at Wolf Park. I wonder if I can learn to howl like that?
Wolf Park is a special place to go for a nice walk and watch wolves.
I learned how to tell the difference between a wolf and a coyote, and lots of other important things about wolves.
Stockmar Park is so much fun! I looked for gold, explored the gold mine ruins and I even got to meet an ox!These ruins are what’s left of the gold mine from the 1800s!Now I know that’s NOT a cow!I got to meet all sorts of neat farm animals here!Hmmm. Those rocks are awfully sparkly. Do you think that’s gold??? Stockmar Park has lots of fun things to do inside and out. If you walk around outside it’s free. But the museum is cool too. I really like that pets are welcome!
