Camping at Turkey Run

In late October Christopher and I went camping for the weekend at Turkey Run State Park — which we learned was Indiana’s second-ever state park. They have a lot of hiking trails, sandstone caverns, virgin forests, and covered bridges.

The park is situated in Parke County, Indiana, which apparently is like the covered bridge capital of the world. While we were there they were having their annual Covered Bridge Festival, which seemed mostly to be an excuse to have a bunch of huge flea markets in the county seat, Rockville.

It was cold but we had fun. And both of us actually appreciated the opportunity to unplug from our electronica for a bit — Christopher enjoyed himself re-reading some of his Calvin & Hobbes collections while I was finally able to focus myself and finish up Franny and Zooey, of all things.
