Turkey Run State Park in Indiana is one of our favorite parks and places to hike. When we decided not to spend the money to go to the upper peninsula of Michigan this year, it was not hard to opt for a six-day trip to Turkey Run. Instead of walks along Lake Superior shoreline and hikes to find tall pines, we were in for moderate to rugged trails through topography that looks nothing like the relatively flat farmland of northeastern Indiana.

Camping for us means hooking up our 26-foot trailer to our pick-up truck and heading for a campground.We used to tent-camp, and we had a pop-up trailer for one camping trip, but those days are behind us. We have a comfortable bed, small kitchen, bathroom, table and small couch, heating and air conditioning. I guess people now call it "RV-ing, but we still saying "camping."

Most of the wonderful photos from the rugged trails were taken by Dennis, since my left knee has been bothering me for months and I chose to remain at the campground. I contented myself with some easy hiking and wandering through the campground looking for interesting wildlife.

I'll have more photos and camping commentary this week.
