The 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.

Mud Lake Creek running into the lake from the west side. Carol, waving in photo. In 2005, Carol (my wife), our dog and I walked through a trail made through the tall grass, then along the frozen creek to reach this point.

Various construction equipment was scattered about a clearing by a small lake near the back gate of the park. February 13, 2005
