Who doesn’t love a 60-degree weather day in February? As crazy as Indiana weather can be, it does have its perks. My last post was all about spontaneously getting out of your own city and going somewhere you’ve never been, but what if leaving town isn’t a possibility?
This weekend Josh and I opted outside and headed to Eagle Creek Park with Ted. My parents got us a 2017 Indiana State Park pass for Christmas, so we made it our goal to visit every state park this year. Little did we know, Eagle Creek Park is a city park, not a state park so our pass didn’t work. Luckily, since we are Marion county residents, we only had to pay $5 to get in. We spent a couple of hours walking the trails, trying to wear out Ted, and found this beautiful spot overlooking Eagle Creek Reservoir (photo above). It was the perfect day to get out of the house and get some fresh air.
Are you interested in exploring outdoor Indiana? In celebration of Indiana State Parks turning 100 in 2016, the Indiana State Library and Indiana State Parks teamed up to encourage Hoosiers to visit parks and libraries by introducing the State Park Centennial Annual Pass Library Check-Out Program. Visit your local library, check out a pass, and have access to the 32 state parks across Indiana! It’s supposed to be 65 degrees and on Sunday–what are your plans for this weekend? Sometimes, exploring close to home is the perfect solution for weekend wandering.
