Hiking Shades State Park

Last weekend my husband and I went on another hike in one of Indiana’s beautiful state parks. Shades State Park is about an hour’s drive west of Indianapolis on Sugar Creek. To get there we drove through miles of flat farmland, but the park itself has gulleys, canyons and gorges. Really beatiful! I particularly loved all the spring wildflowers.

It was definitely a rugged trail. Ibuprofen was my friend for several days afterwards!

We had to climb ladders to get through several of the gorges.
