Visiting Turkey Run State Park in winter after snow fall is an expedition I often think of in the hot summer days of Indiana. The snow covered slopes of Sugar Creek look pleasant enough.

But the temperatures drop significantly after entering the Rocky Hollow canyon. This vertiginous view of Wedge Rock is due to the fisheye lens I used here.

Proceeding further, the walls become covered with icicles.

Ascending into the narrower parts of the canyon and navigating the ice covered walls is impossible without proper gear.
