It was a beautiful day! The Aurora Arctic Adventure 2017 Family Day event at the historic Town Park on February 20th endured record high temperatures, perhaps even historic temperatures. The banks of snow from last week’s snow fall were big enough failing to melt completely. The ice ring was semi-functional and was not restricted to skates …

Apparently wild turkeys can fly. I saw it finally for the first time and this is my photographic proof and sequel on the sighting of wild turkeys in Aurora. I came back to see them the next day. I never got close to them, as interestingly enough, they kept moving away with every step I made towards …

There he was a tall man, and telling ya, not a Slender Man. The tall of the tallest Jason walked dark trails during the Aurora Haunted Forest Saturday night (October 29, 2016) at Sheppard’s Bush Conservation Area. Scary, scary! I bet he was real; as real as he can be. We got goose bumps, even us …
