“Mendon Ponds Park is the largest Monroe County Park with 2,500 acres of woodlands, ponds, wetlands and glacially created landforms. While hiking through, you will likely find yourself atop a winding hill, referred to as an Esker in geological terms. You can look for Kames as you go along (small mounds/hills) and check out Devil's Bathtub, which is a Kettle Pond. Visit the Wild Wings Nature Center to see birds and other local animals being rehabilitated. While you're there you can buy birdseed to hand-feed local Chikadees, NutHatches, and the Tufted TitMouse.”

“Peppermints is a classic diner very close to the Thru-Way. The prices are slightly on the higher side, but the food is consistently good and the service is great. You'll have coffee within a few minutes of being seated, and a refill on the way! They have a fantastic selection of tea available as well - Kelly's favorite is the peppermint ginseng. ”
