Tuesdays' Show & Tail - No Monster in the woods - or WAS There?!?

I'm linking in today with  West Virginia Treasures, hoping to inspire other animal lovers to post about their pets and creatures in nature - perhaps you have an interesting photograph to share with us?  Link in at Angela's blog, and join in the fun!

Mr. Wonderful and I were away on a weekend mini-vacation paid for by his employer.  Every year they have an awards ceremony in honor of the workers who have been with the company for a number of years.  Last year they held it at a ski lodge and received so many compliments from everyone who attended, so they decided to have it at the same place once again.  We got continental breakfasts, and the awards banquet on Saturday night featured Rib Eye Steaks  and chicken breast - very tasty!

Slippery Old Plants over mud and marsh areas
Camera at the ready...
Saturday during the day we were free to do whatever we wished, and Mr. Wonderful and I went 'exploring' at Grass River Conservation Area.  There were wildlife observation decks every so often, and wooden plant walk-ways to follow.  We stopped to rest and observe nature, hoping to see some neat animals amidst the vegetation...when SUDDENLY - out of NO WHERE - - -

 Yep - BIG FOOT!  Actually, we found this guy lurking in the Archery Section of a sporting goods store!  He was 9 ft. tall and was a target that could be purchased for only $875.00 - such a DEAL!!!

Hope you enjoyed my post for the day!

Boy would I hate to run upon him in the woods...some one could buy him and plant him on they're land if they didn't want trespasser...on the other hand could cause a heart attack to. Trish

Sounds like you had a great time in a really interesting and beautiful place!

That thing WOULD be pretty scary if someone put it in a hidden part of the woods, or where someone would come upon it suddenly, but that other Grammy was right in that it might cause a heart attack! LOL
