    It was an amazing trip exploring the state park of the brown county with my roommates. We all booked a rental car, packed our bags with winter essentials and food items. With a bright smile in the morning, we have started our drive to see the fall colors at 10 a.m. We came across a place where it was filled with a huge number of windmills. Such an awestruck view without blinking the eyes. It was a four-hour journey to the destination, so we made sure that the entire journey should be filled with fun and entertaining. We played games, sang songs together, had food, and finally reached the destination. The moment we entered the barky brown county state park, we all got lost seeing the beauty of the bright colored leaves everywhere. It is located in the center of the southern half of the state of Indiana which is by far the largest of 24 state parks in Indiana. Sightseeing, birdwatching, mountain biking, fishing, hiking, and horse riding are all popular activities at Brown County State Park. The park has over 35 miles of mountain bike trails, including trails endorsed by the International Mountain Bicycling Association and Bike Magazine. There are two lakes located in the State Park Ogle Lake and Strahl Lake. The Brown County area has a humid subtropical climate, classified as “Cfa” in the Koppen climate classification system. There are few other top sights near to this state park which is Yellowwood State Forest where we can stare at the sky with a galaxy view in the night and Brown County Winery which has the best wine. This park is closer to the small town of Nashville in Brown County which has a vintage downtown, best known for the Art colony and also a tourist destination. Art, antique, and specialty shops, as well as galleries, restaurants, and entertainment venues, make up downtown Nashville I had tasted the latte with tiramisu flavor for the first time at Brown County Coffee Shop. We all roamed around the vintage downtown seeing the cute decorations with pumpkins and fall leaves. We returned back home safely by midnight and slept with a bright smile recollecting the whole day.
