I’ve been to Turkey Run State Park hundreds of times. Literary.
Heavy overcast. 45f degrees. Low water. No children screaming. The silence is deafening. How is it I have this place all to myself?
Turkey Run / Shades State Parks area is considered one of the top ten hiking areas in the United States. In my young days, I spent hours on the trails. Health and age now limit me to no more than a couple hours. I always end up at the bridge and trail three. I may never return to the creek at Shades. Every trip here seems like my last. Especially now.
