There are lots of places in and around Lafayette that are beautiful.
This is the portion of Wildcat Creek that runs through the Clegg Foundation Botanical Gardens. It was such a beautiful day today and fall is really starting to peak through.
The place is a unique blend, going from thick woods to an oak savanna with few trees, to riverside life. One of my very favorite places and just outside Lafayette!
Then there’s this place:
Prophetstown State Park.
Prophetstown mainly has prairie with two great hiking trails, a historic farm, and the beginnings of a reconstructed Native American village. It’s a wonderful place to learn about local history and what life was like back around 1920.
There are barn cats all over the place.
Gladys and I both love the bike trail there.
The Chief’s home on a moody day on the prairie.
