Every Friday on twitter travelers share their pictures dedicated to a theme. This week it is fall. Since I just returned from a hike with the Chicago Backpackers in the Charles C. Deam Wilderness in the Hoosier National Forest, I thought I would partake in this grand tradition.
Charles C. Deam Wilderness fall foliage photo essay
The Charles C. Deam Wilderness is a great place to hike in the Hoosier National Forest about an hour south of Indianapolis near Indiana University just outside of Bloomington. On Tower Ridge Road about five miles from Knightridge Road lies a fire tower, which is excellent for leaf viewing. Even though most of the leaves seemed down in the forest, from the fire tower enough reds and oranges were visable to make the scenery spectacular.
If this hike interests you, then check out the Chicago Backpackers page on Meetup or go the the National Forest website for more information. Usually the peak fall color time in southern Indiana is late October to early November.
