Comments: This is a great park. When I arrived I saw tons of deer just walking in the middle of the road. I stayed at the walk-in campsite. When I got to my campsite there were a lot of animals. I saw tons of rabbits hoping around and three road runners. Later in the night I saw a lot of animals. When I had a campfire going a racoon came very close. The racoon stayed at this spot for a while, it looked like it was eating. Then, the next day, I went to the trail; the overlook trail. Well actually, the entire trail is an overlook, but there is a site designated as the overlook. Most of the trail is uphill, and that made me tired. On the way up I noticed a lot of little rabbits hopping around. Then I saw a huge rabbit along with two little rabbits, then a road runner. When you get to the overlook you can see forever. The hills are beautiful and the sunset was spectacular. On the way down it got very dark. I spotted two little black things. I figured out they were skunks. I tried to take a picture of them but it was too dark. The next morning when I got my tube to go down the river I saw a bunch of turkeys walking in the road. Then when I was coming back, there were deer and turkeys eating grass and still in the middle of the road. I thought to myself now this is animal country.
