Enjoying the Beauty of Spring!

Enjoying the beauty of Spring!
It’s that time of year again when one can find the many joys of spring.  Plants are blooming and birds are singing.  This time of year is great for getting out and exploring.  The weather is not too hot, nor too cold, so pack a light jacket, snacks, plenty of water, and enjoy your adventure! 
Shelby County has an abundance of trails to check out, so start making plans for your next leisure event!  You can visit Eagle Creek State Park in Findlay, Wolf Creek State Park in Windsor, Hidden Springs Natural Forest in Strasburg, the General Dacey Trail in Shelbyville, and other trails on property owned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  It is always a great idea to take a map for your journey, so be sure to stop by the Shelby County Office of Tourism, located at 315 E. Main Street in Shelbyville to find maps for the local state parks.  And, for the most up to date maps of the U.S.A.C.E. trails, check out the following website:
Hope you enjoy the beauty of spring and your time in the great outdoors! 

Below are just a few of the treasures I found while hiking on the Fox Trail at Wolf Creek State Park in Windsor.  Be sure to check them out before they are gone . . .
