Fall Colors in Brown County, IN
We have plans to visit friends in southern IN, but they have had some motorhome problems as they were returning north from a caravan. So we decided to head to Nashville, IN to spend a few days enroute. Often called Little Nashville, the town has many historic buildings and is known for its music venues. It is also a real tourist trap. Nearly every building in town is designed to separate you from your money.
None the less-it has several things going for it. It is located in scenic Brown County famous for its fall colors and is also home to the For Bare Feet Company. Ever since our first visit here two years ago, we are hooked on these socks. So we have stocked up on these for the foreseeable future.
We are staying at the Westward” Ho” campground, just outside of town and also close to the Brown County State Park. It has its own small walking trail and view of the fall colors.
Even thought the colors are a bit past their peak-mostly due to a wind storm that occurred the day we drove here, we enjoyed a tour of the country side. It is not an exaggeration to say that some of these roads are among the less traveled. The scenery was very enjoyable.
