19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Stairway at McCormick's Creek State Park

The weatherman had predicted rain all day, but we didn't let that stop us from visiting the oldest state park in Indiana, McCormick's Creek. The low light was magical, and - better yet - the forecast kept people away. Normally this stairway would be lined with people, but we had it to ourselves! The descent was wet and slippery, and stopping to take a picture was a good excuse to rest!
