Picnic at the Falls of the Ohio

A visit to Falls of the Ohio State Park is always pleasurable, but at sunset it is magical.

For those not familiar, it is located on the banks of the Ohio River at Clarksville, Indiana, across the River from Louisville, Kentucky. The park is part of the Falls of the Ohio National Wildlife Conservation Area. The exposed fossil beds date from the Devonian period and are a main feature of the park. For those who enjoy history, the Falls was the site where Lewis & Clark met for the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

It is one of my favorites simply because it is so unlike any other Hoosier state park. And, it is the perfect place to explore, geologically, which has been a fascination of mine since I was very young.
