Nice day for a hike, so off I went to Charlestown State Park in Indiana. The park is part of the land given to the state by the federal government after it closed and cleaned up (at great expense) the Indian Army Ammunitions Plant spread out over more than 10,000 acres along the Ohio River. Besides the park, there are giant buildings spread out in an industrial park, but skeletons of some of the old ammo buildings remain.

Short trip into the countryside with unseasonably-warm weather. Saw the color of this barn and couldn't resist taking a shot.
I have had the privilege of visiting this part of Montana, Wyoming and Idaho near Big Sky, Montana and West Yellowstone a number of times in the summer and winter. Without a doubt, winter is astonishingly beautiful there. No crowds. Recently went there. It was very difficult to whittle down the shots to a manageable number. I may end up rotating them through.
