Todd and I visited Shawnee Lookout park a few days ago when the temperatures soared and it felt like spring. As you saw in the previous post, we ran into some nice fowl folks while visiting the lookout. The park is over 1500 acres of hills, wetlands and trails. It sits in the southwestern section of the state, butting up against Kentucky and Indiana. The Great Miami River meets the Ohio River in the park creating an important habitat for many waterfowl. Also, located on the site are many native burial mounds and an old frontier house and school.
Coming up: Miami Ft. Trail, The house and school, and Shawnee tree art.
Awesome pics. I’ve been to Kentucky and fell in love with the land. My SO was raised there and it’s always fun when we explore on visits!
I am reading the biography of Daniel Boone to my boys so these pictures were perfect.
Thanks. Well I’ll have some photos of a Daniel Boone’ish’ looking house soon.
awesome…I have little boys that will love that! 🙂
These subtle colors are amazing! So many great shots.
These pictures are amazing!
A virtual walk in the woods! 🙂
You do very good work! I love these pictures! Brings about memories I experienced as a child:)
Glad I brought back memories. Thanks.
Snow all gone? Great photos!
Yes it comes and goes fast here. 🙂 Maybe some ice tomorrow night.
Oh! This looks like a great place for an adventure! You sure know how to find good romping, sniffing places! Thanks for sharing!
Yes. You’d love it. Plus there were tons of cardinals hopping all over the ground. You’d have plenty of birds to chase.
your walking excursions
demand the camera’s attention
Thanks for sharing the beauty …
Lush shots, we had 2 days of blue skies, but still cold, and now we’re back to -3 😞I need to emigrate!
Yikes. It’s been cold here and maybe some ice tomorrow.
Nice winter shots! I grew up in southern Indiana and these remind me of home. Thanks for posting!
Yes, this park is right next to Indiana, near Lawrenceburg.
Thank you for the virtual hike!
Welcome Judy, thanks for going with us.
The “Feet” photo immediately made me smile! 🙂
My Dad took us to Daniel Boones homestead when I was 14. I fell in love with Kentucky, Missouri, Indiana, the whole region, so different from So Cal. I ended up marrying a man from Illinois, too!
One of the few parts of Ohio I haven’t visited yet. Keep on snapping the pictures Seth! Love it!!!
Thanks. You should visit down here.
Dang, you make dead wood gorgeous! Oh, and the rest is truly lovely also.
Thanks so much David. 🙂
I kinda like the way you captured the way tiny creatures see the world around them 😉
I loved the way you capture the beauty of Nature, the trees seems dancing with their arms open to sky. Sorry for my english! J’adore ton travail =)
Seth: I was very pl.eased to see these images…I’m a great fan of the now deceased, Alan W. Eckert, famous historical fiction novelist. Forgive me if you are aware of him and his work, but if not, you would do well to get a copy of, That Dark and Bloody River, the Ohio, which depicts the settlement of the Ohio rive valley. I have a copy in my hand.
No, I am not familiar with him. I look forward to reading this book. 🙂
Fantastic photos! You have an awesome blog. 🙂
Thanks so much for the kind words.
The first two photos made me think of the movie Cold Mountain. I wonder if some of it was shot there?
Maggie. Thanks. I just looked it up and no it wasn’t. But close.. North Carolina.
Lovely photos as usual. I love the boots shot, so cute and silly!
Thanks. 🙂 That was Todd’s idea.
Like field mouse view.
I remember the Sjawnee Indians from old films in the 1950’s. Was this lookout named after a place where people ‘looked out’ for them, or somewhere that the Shawnee used to look out from, I wonder? Regards, Pete.
Pete, could be. I can check it out and see if I can find anything.
love them all as usual!!! having said that I particularly like the Todd cam…the way you took the photo through the fence with Todd in front of the building…nicely done Seth… 🙂
Thanks Heather. He thought it was funny too.
