Big Bone Lick State Park

Yep.. that's the name.  So I researched the name of this place and found out that woolly mammoths, mastodons and bisons came to this place to Lick salt from the springs then fell in the bogs.  And when the palentologist came they discovered Big Bones of the big animals.  Got it!

This campground was very peaceful.  We went on a long hike around the lake/pond, played in the swimming pool, threw the frisbee and read by our camp site.  It was a very relaxing place. 

Later in the night we were reading in the tent and encountered our first animal.  We never saw what it was but there was a lot of licking and sniffing going on around the tent.  I think it was a dog.. Bryce wanted it to be a bear. I doubt it.
