    The Ray Harral Nature Park is located off 121st(Tucson St) east of Elm.

    It is behind the school.

    If you use the address from the Broken Arrow site to get directions be sure to use google maps.

    The other map sites do not always lead to the park.

    Sodalis Nature ParkSodalis Nature Park is another park in the Hendrick’s County Park’s system.

    trailheadsodThe signs are just like the ones at the McCloud Nature Park.

    meThis park has 3.5 miles of trails and 210 acres.

    Nick and I got to hike alone for this one!

    I consider hikes dates, the best kind really.

    I would rather watch a movie at home than a theatre and food tastes better after a hike.

    trailmarkersAnother park with beautiful woods.




    beechsignThere are some educational panels on some of the trails.

    battrailThis is also a conservation area for bats.

    sodbarkSuch beautiful parks!

    This one is just south of Plainfield.

    While in Indiana, I wanted to be sure and check out some Nature Parks near my parents.

    One of these is the McCloud Nature Park.

    It is part of the Hendricks County Parks system.

    trailsignsIt has 6 1/2 miles of trails and 232 acres!

    shootingMy mom joined us for this hike.

    trailmarkOne of these days I will get there when the Nature Center is open so we can check it out and get a map.

    Yes, we got a little lost.

    In my defence I took us the right direction and we could even see the vehicle!

    A river just happened to be in between it and us…

    riverBarely a stream really.


    bridgeThere is a nice bridge for those of you that do not feel like swimming.

    iceThe boys(including Nick) liked to test the thickness of the ice on the trail.

    He broke through.

    I went around.

    maplesyupThey have maple syrup demonstrations on the weekends in February!

    They were going on the weekend we were there but my sisters wedding was the same day.

    If you live the area though, you should check it out!

    pathwayI took the angled picture on accident but liked it.

    I do my best work when I am not paying attention apparently.

    familyI took advantage of my mom hiking with us to get a shot of all of us!

    This is a beautiful park and I would love to visit in the spring!

    They have so many beautiful trees!

    Be sure to check it out!

    Nick and I were able to check out the Sodalis Nature Park by ourselves the next day!

    I will share that one tomorrow.
