Last Peeping Trip Of The Season

Thursday I took what I believe will be my last leaf peeping trip of the season.  Frankly, I'm tired of all the driving.  This last trip took me back to Indian Cave State Park, one of my favorite local parks.

Indian Cave State Park is located about two hours south.  I would spend more time there if it weren't so far away.  The park has a lot going for it.  Hills.  Forests.  Over twenty miles worth of trails.  A River.  A historic ghost town, St. Deroin.  A couple cemeteries.  Lots of history.  Lots of nature.  It would be a perfect leaf peeping park but this year, the colors are muted.  Last year I was too late.  This year I think I may have been too early.  Can't win them all I guess.

I took quite a few pictures but few really wowed me.  Only two pictures made me look twice.

A little bit of color by the Missouri River

St Deroin Cemetery Gate.
If I had the motivation I would go back down in a week or two to see if more color makes an appearance.  I don't feel any motivation coming.


  1. You never know. That's two whole weeks from now...

  2. GH: I'm all drived out. Maybe next year.
