Summit Lake State Park...

Back on the 10th of October we drove the three hours to Summit Lake State Park, just east of Indianapolis. It was another State Park that we had never visited before. We enjoyed a picnic by the lake's edge and then had a lovely hike through dense forest along the shoreline. We also saw many interesting birds. It was a great day's outing to another beautiful Indiana State Park!
