Mohican State Park

Start your fall leaf adventure on the southern side of the Mohican State Park and visit the fire tower first. You’ll be able to climb several stories above the ground and look out over a sweeping tree-covered vista. Then hop back in the car and drive through the park itself. You’ll wind your way up tree-lined roads approaching the Mohican Gorge and the gorge overlook. The gorge overlook is one of the highest points in the park. Stop the car here, step out onto the overlook and the entire Mohican Gorge will be laid out below you, the Clear Fork River winding its way among the colorful trees. When you’re finished here, drive down to the bottom of the gorge, across a restored historic covered bridge, and you’ll have the chance to picnic or hike miles of forested trail along the riverbanks and through the forest.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
