O'Bannon Woods State Park...

We spent a day visiting O'Bannon Woods State Park recently. (Monday, 24th April.) This state park is located in the Harrison-Crawford State Forest, on the banks of the Ohio River. We looked at the Hay Press barn, the farm animals, and the pioneer farmstead. We also hiked along the Ohio River Bluff hiking trail, which offered scenic views of the Ohio River and the state of Kentucky across the river.
