Sunrise on the Prairie

Sunrise breaking through the morning fog on Mnoke Prairie – Indiana Dunes National Park.

This is a marvelous trail for an easy stroll and bird watching.

The Mnoke Prairie trail combines with the Little Calumet River Trail. The short version of the hike starts at the Bailly Homestead and goes along the Little Calumet River for about a mile before coming to a fork on the path. A sign to the left marks the start of the Mnoke Prairie. The looped trail from this point is slightly less than one mile long.

A Walk to Chellberg Farm

A Walk to Chellberg Farm

A visit to Chellberg Farm starts on a tree lined trail. If you just keep walking about one half mile you’ll catch a glimpse of the farmhouse. Get off the main trail a little bit and take a right to get a lovely view of the prairie, some cows, pigs and the garden. Early mornings are often filled with sunshine breaking through the fog. On this day, I happened to run into Mr. and Mrs Chellberg, all dressed in their gardening clothes as the watched over their lovely flowers, fruits, and veggies of all varieties.

Chellberg Farm is on one of several trails that are part of the Indiana Dunes National Park.

Outdoors on Center Stage

Great Outdoors on Center Stage

Five scenes from one morning on one trail on the Indiana Dunes National Park. Enjoyed the quietness of Central Beach earlier this week before moving on to the sandy trails through the greenness of the forest. After a couple of days of rainfall, the wildflowers were taking in the sunshine and so was I.
