On the Road to Brown County Indiana

We set off from home on Tuesday, January 5, heading south into Indiana. My goal was to spend that night in Brown County State Park near Nashville in southern Indiana. I’d guess my last visit there was at least 40 years back, but I had not forgotten the park’s amazing beauty.

It is difficult to realize one is in the state of Indiana as you drive toward the park entrance from Columbus, passing through the tiny wide spot in the highway named Gnaw Bone. The land became hilly making me wonder, “this is Indiana, with vast, flat corn and soy bean fields?” What a major change in topography as we neared the north entrance to the park! Thickly wooded, rolling hills in every direction. A beautiful covered bridge welcomed us just inside the gate. With dusk fast-approaching, I hurried to stop on the way to the campground a few times to capture the beauty of this place with my phone’s camera.

Even in the stark winter, the beauty of this place shines through.
Not to worry in January, these cold-blooded creatures should be bedded down for a long winter’s rest.

A great first stop on a trip that will present many more beautiful moments.
