Outdoor Beauty at Conner Prairie


Beautiful flowers along the fence line.

A glimpse of fall along the fence line outside the Animal Encounters Barn.

I love the turning of leaves in the fall.

Outside the McClure's Home

The Privy

Trading Post in the Lenape Camp

A dugout canoe and the fur trader

I don't know if you would necessarily consider this outdoor beauty, but I wanted to share it with you and it seemed to fit here best. I thought this scarecrow to be quite hilarious!

A beautiful sky!

The view from the Conner Homestead!
