Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve, Fishers, Indiana

Anita was off work today, so for lunch we drove over to Sam's Gyros and picked up a regular gyro (for Anita) and a spicy gyro (for me) and headed over to Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve in Fishers. We have driven by Ritchey Woods at least a hundred times and always wanted to stop, and today we finally did.

Ritchey Woods is a nature preserve of about 127 acres. There are several walking trails...

... and a few picnic tables, and a nice shelter area for anyone's use.

It seems that the shelter was recently used for a rather major pumpkin carving activity!

It was nice out today (mid 70s), and there were a few people there walking their dogs... or just walking themselves!

While walking along one trail we discovered these enormous giant puffball mushrooms. Apparently these mushrooms can get over 40 pounds in weight! I can believe it by how big they are! The large one below was bigger than a basketball!

Ritchey Woods is a nice little place to stop by for a stroll and enjoy the woods and nature. We are looking forward to returning soon.
