menzel park, boardwalk and signThe boardwalks at Menzel Park were officially opened in
 2008. They make the walk to Mud Lake much easier. The
 park is divided into seven sections. The wooded  wetland features white cedar and other trees that like  damp climes. Below, the shrub fen looked bleak on an
 unusually mild but foggy February afternoon.
