I hope the Overland Park Parks and Rec. Dept. doesn’t mind my borrowing their map, I wanted to add the exact location of the segment of Tomahawk Creek Trail that is home to the Firefly Forest. As I have noted previously (this post is now posted separately and able to be accessed from the home page menu), this trail is located between 137th and 138th streets west of Antioch, extending almost to Switzer and then west of Switzer extending behind the Deanna Rose Farmstead park. The segment on this map in red, surrounded by the black oval, encompasses the entire area of Firefly Forest:
I’m pretty sure this is a reference to those mentioned in the last post here. A very Firefly Forest response to the troublemakers.
About this time last year, we had some massive flooding (pre-Firefly Forest) hit Tomahawk Creek. This is the actual trail, complete with confused giant catfish. The whole family had an interesting time putting on our rain boots and carrying buckets to return this and the many other fish back to Tomahawk Creek. The fish in the picture was about a foot long!
Please pardon the Watcher, I have just returned from having hip surgery, and can currently only make it (not allowed hills yet!) to the bridge with a crutch. Normal posting will resume as I recover….or find a scooter that can manage hills! I will try to find some other older photos to post until then. Thank you!
Some very early signs popping up all over….though the weather is keeping us a bit confused.
