Spring Mill State Park


For Tuesday's treasures...I am showing a few scenes from Spring Mill State Park in Indiana.






I love to visit places like this...





We have had our family picnic down there the past couple or three years...


but we just stay at a shelter and talk and visit.  These photos are from 2007.





I wish I had a fireplace...


I would be happy with either one of these.  There is nothing like sitting by a fire and visiting with a friend.

Linking to Tuesday's Treasures...

That fireplace really is charming. It reminds me of my mom's at her old house. I can see why you have family picnics here, the grounds are pretty.

ps thank you for your comment tonight. My mom passed away about 9 years ago,
but she is always in my heart. : )

The buildings are beautiful! They don't look worn or old. Maybe recently built to look very old?

...Rose, Spring Mill State Park is my kind of place too! What a lovely walk back in time. Thanks for sharing these wonderful sights.

That is a lovely place for a picnic. I love fireplaces, too. It's especially fun to see the big fireplaces they used to cook on.

the second little cabin I want for myself. it must have indoor plumbing and power and wifi and I could live in it. I love a fireplace, but only had one for about 6 months. it was a total pain to clean out after the fire burned down, I would like to have one with gas logs I think.

Hello, Rose! I like the second cabin, it is cute. The fireplace does look pretty and inviting. Wonderful park and photos. Have a happy day!

I love to visit these kind of places too! The original buildings are fine examples of craftsmanship way back.

I am fascinated with old cabins. They are honored all over Indiana in our state and county parks. I have read the history of the area where I live, along the St. Joseph River. The very land where I live was a place the Indians made camp. I also love to find the historical markers that I have seen in Indiana and Michigan commemorating a certain area or historical event. I'm not a history buff, but I find the history of where I live interesting.
xx, Carol
