One of the very best parts of living in Indiana is being able to visit Conner Prairie Interactive History Park. It’s a living museum, and each section lets you visit a distinct period of Indiana’s past. All of the interpreters are 100% in character at all times, right down to the language and mannerisms of the period. I love to visit this wonderful place and get swept away in the charm, the history, and the smell. Yes, the smell of farm animals. Conner Prairie has their fair share of animals. It’s a living, working farm, after all, so animals are a natural part of it. I took my new Fuji camera to Conner Prairie today to experiment, play, and above all, enjoy a quiet July afternoon.

There’s a lot to Conner Prairie, and I didn’t get to enjoy it all because a steady rain moved in about two hours into my visit. Now, I love rain and can spend hours in it, but my camera cannot, so I cut my visit short. I’ll return soon, I’m sure. I always do!
