Fort Harrison State Park...

Late last month we took a road trip to visit Candace's family in Grabill, just near Fort Wayne, and Mercy Ships friends just outside of Detroit, Michigan. We visited many interesting places - including four state parks - on our travels there and back again.

One of our first stops on the way up to Grabill was Fort Harrison State Park. This is located on the outskirts of Indianapolis and was a former military camp from 1906 until 1991. Fort Harrison State Park was established in 1996 and is one of Indiana's youngest state parks. We enjoyed browsing in the interesting museum as well as walking along a short trail. It was a lovely start to our travels!

 Pretty indigenous garden outside the Nature Centre.
 Cute little cowboy.
 The interesting museum at the Nature Centre.
 World War II exhibit.
 What the Citizen's Military Training Camp once looked like many years ago...
 And what it looks like today.
 Former accommodation blocks.
 Walking along one of the scenic trails.
 Heading back to our car.
 Lots of big brick mansions in this area.
