Lookout at Brown County State Park, Nashville, Indiana

On a recent trip to Indiana
for a family graduation,
took a hike to see woods and wildflowers.

Found a great old structure,
an elevated log cabin.

Cool as the place was,
the point was really the views.

Windows all around
with vistas
and the showy
green of spring.

So many places of beauty in the world--
so many areas left to explore.

On a weekend in May
the world in Indiana
was just waking from winter.

I love state and national parks
and Brown County is on my list of favorites.
The park's Abe Martin Lodge
is a great place to stay.

And the north lookout tower
is a fine place to visit.

Scarecrow maybe, but Mockingbird Unafraid

I just missed the shot
of the mockingbird sitting
on the scarecrow's shoulder.

The backyard, with young beans, corn, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, squash and ancient scarecrow.

Glowing Shaker Barns

 More shots from the Shaker Village in Kentucky.

I liked the way the evening glow picked up the reds and yellows.
