I remember when Richard M. Nixon County Park (York Co., PA) was created in the mid 70s but never got around to visiting it …probably because it was so close to home! Funny how that works.

I’m not a big fan of stuffed animal displays and I figured the trails would be pert’ near the same as what I saw behind our house growing up. Actually, we were pleasantly surprised! – and just a few miles away.

Got some good practice using the Fujifilm X-T1 and Fuji’s amazing manual focus peaking.  I also took a lot of photos of the stuffed animals in case I ever needed reference photos for future illustrations.
