To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Perrot State Park their Friends group has come out with a special publication featuring 4 coloring pages. Here's a sneak peak and a few of my own creative results.
|Berol Prismacolor Pencils|
Prairie Pollinators-A bouquet of native blooms and a variety of pollinators, to remind us of natures special relationships. Each pollinator seeks the prairie plant designed with them in mind. Hope you find peace and harmony while contemplating which colors to choose. There's a range of possibilities.
|Yasutomo Pearly Water Colors|
Trempealeau Bay-The Bay forms at the convergence of the Trempealeau and Mississippi Rivers, isolating Trempealeau Mountain. An attraction for modern park visitors who like to paddle and past traveling voyageurs banking on some new found land. Local aquatic inhabitants gather around the voyageurs canoe pondering what kind of new log has washed ashore. Whether it's sunset or moonset, it's the colorist choice.
|Pen and pencil-with a splash of red|
Perrot Post-This designated landmark highlights one of the parks original hosts, Nicolas Perrot a French Fur Trader, who hung his hat and coat near this historical marker. Resident woodland animals reveal themselves, hidden among the hardwood trees, curious to see the new comer. Evidence of the area first known inhabitants are also seen among the mounds that once filled the park. Acknowledging the attraction of this place we call Perrot State Park.
Brady's Bluff-Reaching the highest point in the park begins with Horseshoe Falls part of a State Natural Area. Hikers journey up the west side retracing the quarried stone footsteps of the CCC. The strong men who toiled together created the original path to the summit. Along the way woodland blooms and driftless wonders transform into goat prairies, showcasing the diversity of natures wonder. Be sure to bring your binoculars for a birds eye view at the top of Cambrian stone cliffs.
Still one more page to color. Saving it for a rainy day.
Wait there's more...in addition to the four coloring pages are historic photos, fun facts and activity pages for all ages.
They sell for $4.00 or buy three for $10.00 at the park headquarters and share the fun. Makes a great souvenir, gift for mom or an activity for the whole family.
