While the world waits, let’s continue to the second stop on my excursion North, the Black Rock Barrens Nature Preserve.
In contrast to the nearby Black Rock Preserve, this one features a decent long loop through the preserve, but no rock formations.
It does offer the opportunity to get lost in the tall grass. Doing so in the summer will probably result in dangerous blood loss due to insect bites.
With a bit of effort and luck one can access the Wabash from here, too. It’s just behind the trees up there.
