Toltec Mounds State Park

Since Brad didn't have to work today, we decided to take a short trip to see the Toltec Mounds.  It was a perfect day and with a nice breeze coming off the lake, we had perfect weather as well.  There were once 18 mounds on the site; now there are only three left.  The mounds were used for burial, to house ceremonial buildings and residences, feasts, and to measure the solstices and equinoxes.  Native Americans lived and worshipped in the area for about 400 years before they left for unknown reasons in 1050 AD.  Anyway, pictures!

Part of the walk included a boardwalk that went out over the oxbow lake. 

Cooper enjoyed this part (probably the shade).

Someone was worn out!
