Memorial Day in Shades State Park

Today was Memorial Day here in the US and we had a day off. Pat, Anja and myself took ourselves off to Shades State Park, a nature reserve with very cool ravines around Sugar Creek in western Indiana. It's about an hours drive from West Lafayette.

We all had a great time although hiking in the ravines when its over 90F is not something to snort at!! Anja was extremely curious and was very insistent that she could walk everywhere !! We were either moving along or very slowly indeed. She was also an avid naturalist, everything had to be examined in great detail!!

Took some nice photos, but my favourite is this one of Anja and Pat. This was taken under the forest canopy whilst standing in a ray of light peeking through!!
