|A panoramic view of Little Wabash's pond and surrounding trees. All of this was created on farmland by the land's previous owner.|
|What was once perhaps corn and soybeans is now a well developed woodland.|

Even though this land no longer produces commercial crops, my little band of hikers found something to harvest...
|Raspberries made their way to America by the late 1700s, and commercial production of this tasty fruit was soon on the rise. Today, people can’t seem to get enough of the them, like Hank here!|
With our tastebuds satisfied for the moment, we trekked on through the woods hoping to catch a glimpse of the deer this area is known for. This preserve is commonly a crossroads for white-tailed deer, and is actually closed from November through January for permitted deer hunting. But alas, we saw no deer today.
