LIFE IS BECOMING AN OVERSIZED SWAMP AROUND THESE PARTS
Now I knew that Forest Park’s 1,371 acres contained three museums, a zoo, a couple of golf courses, playing fields, a forest and a multitude of lakes, streams, ponds, fountains, waterfalls, cascades and a Grand Basin, but I had never heard about a swamp. Well, unlike California, because of all the rain we’ve been having we have more water laying around than the ground can suck up. The swamp was formed by the rain that fell on the verdant hilly golf course you see in the background of the photo. While I didn’t see any gators in the swamp, I wouldn’t get too close.
