On this hot summer day, my husband and I decided to explore a park we’ve never been to before, even though this park is fairly close by. We’ve been to Kensington Metropark many times and never thought to venture on the other side of the freeway before… until today. So, armed with our new state park pass, camera, and water, off we went on our little adventure. Come join us if you’d like. Just visit the Island Lake Recreation Area link on my travelogue page.
