Light and Shadows

Light and Shadows

My favorite spot on the Pinhook Trail of the Indiana Dunes National Park is standing on the bridge, looking across this scene. This is right about halfway into the loop trail and the spot that I still look forward to getting to. As many times as I’ve been here, the setting is the same but the backdrop changes continuosly depending on the light. Sometimes there are birds in the water and other times not. Reflections too are there on sunny days but not so much on gray days. Beauty is one thing that is consistent. Fall, winter, spring, or summer, beauty can be found along the trails.

    1. This trail is only about 13 miles from home so I am able to get to it fairly often. All the other trails that are part of the Indiana Dunes National Park are a mile or two closer and even quicker to get too. Close enough to get to almost on a daily basis. 😊

  1. Irene, what a gorgeous picture. I take back every bad thing I ever said about Indiana. That is one of the most beautiful, peaceful sights I’ve ever seen. I’m going to have to go through my dad’s pictures and see if he has any Indiana Dunes pictures. WOW!

    1. Hehe! I would love to see yours dad’s pics of the dunes. When we first moved here, I had no idea that I would enjoy hiking the Indiana Dunes trails so much. Now I can’t stay away even in the winter. 😁

      1. You’ve given us some great pictures. I guess my attitude was what was wrong with living in Indiana as a kid, not the state itself! I’m so glad we’re friends and I get to reconnect with and appreciate my home state. πŸ™‚
