For those who read this blog, and who live in Indiana, you already know how beautiful the yellow forests are with the changing autumn leaves. This fall of 2018 is especially worth a visit, even if you already go out to spend time in nature, because the leaves in Yellowwood State Forest are truly incredible, yellow and golden in hue because of the chill and the incoming cold of winter – still months away!
For those who do not live in southern Indiana near Nashville, Indiana and Brown Country, it is one of the most beautiful, stunning, and scenic destinations in the world and in the northern US. Things to do:
Visit Lake Monroe, a place for kayaking, canoeing, boating, swimming, and exploring the wetlands and wildlife nearby in the nature preserves
Have a drink in a Nashville pub or go for dinner and art shop hunting (there are plenty of galleries and fun touristy artisan shops in Nashville, Indiana)
Walk through Yellowwood State Park – the Jackson Creek trail is a short (roughly a mile loop) trail that has fairy-tale like views of the forest, with log bridges, moss covered stones, delicate light rays, and the ferns and the forest itself (there is a lake nearby that has stunning views either before or after hiking through the forest trees
Take photos of the birds/go birdwatching/admire the farmlands by taking the lesser known gravel roads off the main highway SR 46
Visit Brown County State Park – there’s so much beauty there and people have been known to call it the “Little Smokies” and also one of the most beautiful places in Indiana
As always, time for the photos!
