Falls of the Ohio State Park...

Candace and I visited Falls of the Ohio State Park on Saturday 17th June, before we headed back home. Falls of the Ohio State Park is located in Clarksville, Indiana, just across the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky. We saw a number of interesting birds and enjoyed exploring the fossil beds (photo at right) on the banks of the river. It was a great way to end our flying 24-hour trip to Louisville to see U2! :)
