Fall in Madison Indiana is a very special time. With all of the beautiful tree lined streets and wonderful architecture Madison is an amazing place to spend an autumn weekend
You can spend your time wandering thru all the local shops or take a hike thru Clifty Falls State Park, these and many other things to do await you on your visit to this lovely little River town.
There is also plenty of Music and Food to make your stay an enjoyable experience. A scenic drive along the Ohio River valley or thru the many country roads that surround Madison make for a wonderful nature filled viewing experience.
Whatever you are looking for in a weekend getaway Madison has it so make a trip before all the leaves are gone and if you miss fall wait till you see Christmas in Madison.
I made a recent two day trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, probably spent more time driving than actually capturing images, but anytime in the park is special. Fall was little shaky there this year patches of really beautiful color but just as many places that it was still dull and a bit dried out.
With conditions being what they were I decided to spend most of my time working in a couple areas. Tremont and the middle prong trail for cascades and then Oconaluftee for a chance at Elk.
The image above was just one of the many beautiful cascades that line the middle prong and rarely ever disappoint. I captured this one pretty early into my hike and followed up with a nice collection of smaller waterfalls.
At about the 2.5 mile point in the hike you come across Indian Flats Falls which is an amazing spot to stop and take in all the beauty of the Smokies. I will share more of that spot and the many other images I captured a little later but for now I thought I might share this wonderful spot just for starters.
If you ever make your way down to the Great Smoky Mountains, Tremont is a must place to visit and while you are there you have to make this great five mile round trip hike to view all the amazing water features along the way.
