Visit Falls of the Ohio State Park

Happy Independence Day, USA!

As one can see from the picture the ancient Devonian Period sea beds are now becoming exposed in this summer season at the Falls of the Ohio State Park. Granted most of the visitors appear to be fishing from them but it is a great time to visit the park. If fossils or fishing are not your game, a large selection of day lily varieties are now blooming. It seems like 50+ types are flowering and the great part is they are mostly labeled with names.

The flowers were planted by the Louisville Daylily Society many years ago. Today Terry Martin maintains them and he has quite a collection to tend to. Learn more at the Falls of the Ohio State Park Facebook page.
