McCormick's Creek State Park...

Candace and I visited McCormick's Creek, a beautiful State Park near Spencer, Indiana, on Sunday 25th October. We were once again treated by the lovely changing colours and enjoyed walking a few short hikes in the forest. We even crawled through Wolf Cave. It was definitely a fun adventure!

 Driving north along a pretty country road.
 So much colour in the trees!
 Harvested field.
 Crossing the old bridge near Newberry.
 Heading towards Spencer. Lovely thick forest on the sides of the road.
 The entrance to McCormick's Creek State Park.
 The Canyon Inn, a former sanitorium that is now a hotel.
 Pretty colours outside the hotel.
 Walking down to McCormick's Creek.
 The creek bed.
 With Candace near the small waterfall.
 33-week photo by the waterfall.
 The stone arch bridge built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.
Walking the picturesque trail to Wolf Cave.
 Wolf Cave. The name comes from the story about a girl who passed the cave on her way home. A pack of wolves emerged and chased after her. She escaped by throwing down her gloves and bonnet and thus distracted the wolves.
 We crawled through to the other side.
 Emerging out of Wolf Cave. It was a fun three-minute crawl through the darkness!
 The Twin Bridges - remains of a cave that has long since collapsed.
 Cute little chipmunk.
 A lovely sunset as we returned home.
What a great afternoon's outing!
