Turkey Run State Park (Indiana) part 4

(Continuing from previous post)

Around 11am we finished hiking and decided it was a bit too early for lunch.  We decided to drive to the Narrows Covered Bridge.  Technically, the bridge is in Turkey Run State Park but it is on the eastern border so we could exit the park and drive by.  A new parallel bridge is part of the current road and the Narrows Covered Bridge is now part of the hiking trails in Turkey Run State Park.

For lunch we returned to the Turkey Run Inn.  This was our third meal at the Inn so we were prepared for the large portions and managed to order a bit less so we didn’t have leftovers.

After resting in our room, we went back to the Nature Center to see the 2pm planetarium presentation.  The planetarium was small but there were only about a dozen of us so we were able to sit near the middle.

After the planetarium presentation we returned to the Inn and hiked Trails 6 and 7.  It was a quick descent into the canyon.

Since we had hiked over 5 miles so far, we next decided to drive to a covered bridge in the area and visit one or more communities in the area.  That will have to wait until my next post.
