Indiana's Mounds State Park Is A Beautifully Brilliant Green

Tori Jane is a storm chaser, writer, photographer, and the village idiot - in that order. When she's not out and about dancing with the meanest storms on planet Earth for funsies she can be found wandering, shooting landscapes, writing, editing photos, and otherwise up to no good. Legend has it that she can also be occasionally spotted typing up short bios in the third person, but those rumors are unsubstantiated.
Indiana is a lovely state, and there are plenty of places all over that you could probably compare to one another in terms of the greenery. One of our favorite places to cover – Shades State Park – is one of those. The greenery is everywhere, from top to bottom, and in the warmer months, it’s undeniably perfect for those of us who really love admiring nature in all its splendor. There’s another, lesser-known park, though, that is also vibrant and green during the spring and summer months – one that doesn’t get as much love as, say, Shades does. Believe it or not, Mounds State Park is one of the greenest places in Indiana, and you’ll want to explore it as soon as you can. Come for the greenery, stay for the history!
