Down the road a ways, is a medium sized river that resembles the Indiana Dunes Shoreline. We go there sometimes, hunt for interesting rocks, clean up trash people have thrown aside, or to just get out and about. One time an old man came to make sure I was not some teenage kid getting drunk. He tried telling me it was private property even though it was not.
This is a trek that either requires getting wet, or wearing waterproof boots. To explore the hidden areas of this area you have to wade out into the river and cross it many times. Downstream it turns into a much larger river, and joins the main stream which flows all the way down to Kentucky. Here along this small stream, lays built up dead trees.
