Clifty Falls Visit

We took a trip to Madison Indiana to visit Clifty Falls State Park. This is a nice park that has a couple of waterfalls which I love. They say on their website that the falls change moods with the weather and the seasons and can range from roaring plunges to delicate bridal- veil mist to gleaming frozen titans. They say that Spring and Winter is the best time to visit the falls. When we were there I think the falls were in a bad mood because there were hardly any falls. I guess it was because they have not had a lot of rain. Even if the falls where not as good as I was hoping this is still a beautiful park. But if you are planning on visiting there is a few things you should know. First there is a lot of walking and there is a lot of stairs. This would be really hard if you have a child that is in a stroller. If you have someone who is a wheelchair I don't see anyway they could go though the trail they have. The other thing is this place has a cave and if you are planning on going through it make sure you take a flashlight with you. 
Clifty Falls offer camping and they also have a restaurant in the park. All in all this is a really beautiful park. We did not do all the trails because when we went it was around 95 outside and humid. We are planning on going back in the Winter and we will be walking more of the trails that we didn't go on before.
While we were there we did go through the cave. The cave does close certain times of the year.
Also on the way up the hill to the park we passed this really neat rock formation on the side of the road that you can park your car under. It was so pretty.
Clifty Falls is located at 1501 Green Road. Madison, Indiana.

White Oak Garden Visit 2015

We visited White Oak Garden about a week ago. This was the second time we have been there and both times have been in the fall around Halloween. 
I love this place!!! It is a great place to visit and take pictures and to shop. All the people who work there are very friendly and helpful. 
Every year they have different things made out straw bales. Last year it was the Minions which I LOVED. This year it is the Charlie Brown group and it`s just as cute. They also still had the little VW bug but this year instead of being the " Purple People Eater", he is a Dragon which is so cool.
Like I said this is a really neat place to go and to take some fun photos. If you have kids I am sure they will love it.
They are starting to get their fall items out so you know me, I had to pick up a few pumpkins. I love the little white pumpkins, I think they are so cute :)
White Oak Garden Center is located at: 3579 Blue Rock Road. Cincinnati, Ohio.
Their web page is: www.whiteoakgardens.com

Old Burlington Cemetery

I have lived in Burlington for about 28 years and I have been past the Old Burlington Cemetery more times then I can count, but the last couple of weeks for some reason I have been drawn to it so we decided to do a ghost hunt there. This is a cemetery were many of prominent people from Burlington are laid  to rest. There is tombstones here from the 1800's and 1900's, they are of former judges, government officials, and veterans. This is not a big cemetery, there is around 250 people buried here. I have never heard anything about this cemetery being haunted but like I said for a few weeks I have been drawn to it.
We went to investigate it twice, we went once during the day and again when it was dark. During our day visit we had a couple of strange things that happened to us. The first one was while standing in the cemetery about 20 yards from the car, Doug tried to lock his car and the power lock would not work until he walked out of the cemetery. His car lock will lock the door from inside Target but it would not work 20 yards from where he was standing. The 2nd thing that happened was Doug has one of the Canon Rebel T3 cameras and if you know anything about them, they have settings on the camera that can only change or be set by you, they do not automatically switch on their own. While he was standing between these two tombstones he took and pic and when he looked at the view finder on his camera the pic was really light, then he looked down at his camera and the settings were going crazy. They were changing all by themselves.  While there I set up my night vision camcorder  and did not pick anything up. Doug was using his voice recorder in the same spot, he turned it on and asked if anyone had anything to say and left it laying while we walked around, when we listened to it you can hear a mans voice saying help. In one of our pics of a mans tombstone we picked up a outline of a woman with a mans face in the upper left corner. 
When we went back at night, I used my night vision camera to recorded and I picked up some light that was coming from inside the cemetery and they were not car lights because I was far down the cemetery. 
This is a creepy old cemetery with a lot of history.
I did not see any signs that the cemetery closes at night but I only walked in for a couple of minutes to film. I did not want to stay in there because unfortunately this cemetery looks like it has been vandalized and I did not want a police officer coming by and seeing me in there and have to explain to him that I am hunting ghost so we stayed outside the gate which still gives you a great view. 
The cemetery is located on Bullittsville Road in Burlington.
