Henry W. Coe State Park
Henry Coe is one of the largest state parks. The beauty of Henry Coe lies in its simplicity. Rolling green hills spotted with gnarled oaks, soft forests, wildflowers in bloom, acorn woodpeckers filling trees with holes to store their acorns, wild turkeys running across the fields, ponds full of tadpoles. None of this seems out of the ordinary, and yet the balance of elements is near perfect here.
UPDATE: Returning to Henry Coe, we found some wild tarantulas, and managed to get a better look at the ubiquitous acorn woodpeckers. We also learned that Coe will remain open for at least 3 more years thanks to the efforts of a non-profit organization.
