A historic site, Poverty Point houses 5 of the "Marsden Mounds". Earthen community mounds that contain archaeologic remnants from thousands of year ago! Pretty old for this part of the world! Not much to see, unfortunately, but just being here and knowing is pretty cool.
A nice park like setting at our end of the lake:
|a cormorant and turtles share a tree stump in the sunshine|
|close up of pelicans, cormorants and turtles sharing the log|
|hadn't seen a red tail in a while|
|Canadian Geese in the swampy part of the lake|
|Yay, another swallowtail!|
