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.
Fans of jaw-dropping hiking trails in Indiana are going to love this: we found a gorgeous loop trail that does nothing but celebrates the spectacular beauty of a body of water usually called Raccoon Lake by locals (which is more formally known as Cecil M. Harden Lake). It’s easy, leads to some of the most spectacular lake views in IN, and is simply oh, so rewarding. Raccoon Lake is pristine and perfect for dipping your feet in – or more – so lace up those hiking boots and get ready to hike to one of the most beautiful, crystal-clear swimming holes in Indiana.
