Waterfalls & Parks


Took a friend and visited a couple DNR properties yesterday July 8, 2014. It was hot and muggy for sure. One was a State Park at Spencer Indiana and the other was a small park at Cataract, Indiana.

The Peden Farm is only what is left of it after the ravishing of time have worked on it. A shell of the house is still there but barely visible due to overgrown weeds.

The Barn was a mighty big one indeed. I took one side of the barn or what was left of it as I thought it looked good against the greens of the trees and weeds in the area.

Our next stop on the way home was Cataract Falls. It was a marvelous time to be here yesterday. The water was flowing wonderfully over all the cascades and falls. The noise was deafening when you get close to the largest one. There is an upper and lower falls but the upper one is more to enjoy.

Just one of the many cascade falls on the upper part of the falls. It was a marvelous sight to see.

    Hi Bob,
    The pics are fabulous. The ones of the old estate just ooze of history. Something about the photos have captured that enough that they speak to me on a very deep level. Perhaps in a previous life I have been there. The cascading falls are marvelous. I think the tourism department should pay you for the promotions you are sharing through your work. Many blessings, Linda
