This is the view from our front door at Lake Scott State Park. We are at the end of the row so enjoy an unobstructed view of the lake. We biked five miles this morning while it was still cool and saw many deer, rabbits, birds, and a couple of big fish in a spring fed pond. Except for the blistering heat (it is supposed to be about 100 degrees tomorrow) and marginal electricity since a blackout two days ago, it is very pleasant here in this oasis in the prairie. Scott City, the nearest town, is 12 miles away.
