  1. Got back from the trip Saturday. Seven days of great hiking in southeastern Illinois and west central Indiana. Took lots and lots of pictures.

    Not much color there or here yet, though.

  2. We are just starting to have enough color to make a difference. I love it.

    Hope your trip was wonderful.

  3. This is quartzite. It's glacial erractic (a rock that doesn't belong where it is). The glaciers moved it from somewhere north of Indiana and the glacial melt water carried it down to Brown County.

    1. More than likely from the Canadian Shield.

      Much of the best farmland of the Great Lakes States is composed of the ground up bits of that part of Canada. Thanks, Candis!
