Treasures in Tippecanoe County

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.

The pigs are awfully friendly.

Yep, he’s eating my foot.

There are barn cats all over the place.

Milking time!

I thought the nesting boxes were pretty clever. Now if only the chickens would use them…

Gladys and I both love the bike trail there.

The Chief’s home on a moody day on the prairie.
