Fabulous pictures Jim. I would LOVE to canoe that river.

Its a nice creek to canoe. I haven't done it in years, though. There are crowds during the summer, particularly weekends.
People often put in at its sister park, Shades State Park, which is about 14 miles upstream and has similar, if not more rugged, topography.
It makes for a great, scenic float with some stretches of fast water.
Today, with the great weather, nice foliage and few canoes (I only saw one) would have been a nice time do take a little canoe trip.

The Wabash River below its confluence with the Tippecanoe River, near Battleground, Indiana.
Country roads north of Delphi, Indiana
Bald cypress trees growing in what's left of the old Wabash and Erie canal
north of Delphi. These trees are native to the state, but are about 150 miles or so north of the northern edge of their range along the lower Wabash. They were planted some years ago by Purdue University which owns the property. They are one of the few deciduous conifers.

These are probably the last for me, since we had peak colors a little earlier in the week. The change from last Monday to today was amazing.
Rain and winds yesterday took a few leaves off, but its still pretty.
These are from Brown County State Park, where I started this thread.
The park roads are gorgeous.

Fantastic stuff guys! We're off out today to capture the last of the peak before too many leaves come down. It's sunny so I should be able to get some bright shots. We've had some wind in the past few days and many leaves are down in the city. We had rain and cars are spattered in leaf debris with lots up in the wheel arches.
Sneaky token car part in that last pic Jim

LOL. I wondered if anyone would notice that. It figures it would be you.
I took this pic but didn't include it because it didn't show the colors too well. But since you noticed the wheel, I'll post of pic of what its attached too.

I couldn't resist going back to the park for one more look at the leaves.
The weather was much better today, but the crowds were horrible. Way too many folks for my taste, so I didn't stay long.
Here is one last Brown County vista shot...
...and one more gratuitous car/foliage shot.

Very brochure-like that last one
Our trip today was truncated when the car decided to overheat
Been planning to get it into the shop for a replacement heater-core....calling the shop tomorrow.
So no foliage pics. I'm sure by next weekend half the leaves will be down.
