Prairie Trail Run

Dad and I trekked up to Prophetstown State Park to run the trails. Since we arrived at 10am on a near record setting temperature day, it was a bit hot.
We went about two miles around trail one. On the northern section that passes near the creek I encountered soggy ground, enough to get my shoes and socks wet. Surprisingly there was plenty of shade along the route.
After the run we stopped by the historic farm. There were more animals around this time (goats, and pigs plus a couple new barn kittens). The garden was growing and the gift shop was open.
