Turkey Run State Park

I’ve been to Turkey Run State Park hundreds of times. Literary.

Smugmug link.

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.
