___________________________________________________

We are starting the day Friday by hiking at Indiana Dunes.

(http://www.meetup.com/ChicagoHOS/events/81902862/)

We then take an hour ride to see the Sandhill Cranes at Jasper-Pulaski. In the evening, we head 20 miles to stay at Tippecanoe State Park the night. On Saturday morning we can either hike around Tippecanoe State Park or go back and see the Sandhill Cranes at Jasper-Pulaski.

Tippecanoe River State Park, 4200 N. US Hwy. 35, Winamac, IN 46996

Rustic Cabins: Vault toilets (No flush toilets or showers.) You will need to bring you bedding (sleeping bag, etc) also a camp chair for sitting round the fireplace. The Unit Lodge Building sleeps twelve (bulk beds), has limited electricity and a fireplace with insert for heating purposes.

The cost will be $6 for the cabin plus you will need to chip in for firewood. Firewood heats the cabin.

The limit is 12 people.

I hope you can make it,

    The cabin was nicer than I expected. We had a great group of people there.

    I'm really sorry I have to miss this outing, but it's too close and I've already scheduled another meetup event for that Saturday morning. I sure hope it's successful enough that you can run it again later on this winter, and post it with a longer notification.
