We made our first visit to Hickory Run State Park this past weekend. It was a gorgeous fall weekend and we saw many interesting things on our trip. I had seen many pictures of the boulder field within the park prior to going, but I have to say that being there is person is a whole different experience. For me it was one of those places that just takes your breath away. If there is a word for peaceful, quiet, tranquil, awe inspiring, breathtaking, beautiful --- that is the word I'd use to describe what I saw.
There were two other people on the field when we arrived - notice them towards the right in the following photo. I took this shot to show scale of the field.
Many photos of the boulder field are of this lone tree in the middle. From this angle it was being backlit from the sun.
My travel (and life!) partner ...
Had to include some of the great fall color!
