For eight years, the husband-and-wife team at Carousel Winery has cultivated the vines of their family farm into a collection of award-winning wines. On Saturday, August 6, Marion and Sue Wilson will throw a party at Carousel's six-acre winery to celebrate its continued success as attendees sample flights of reds and whites, try out descriptors such as "oaky" and "four," bite on BBQ ribs and chicken, and show off complimentary Carousel glasses. Throughout the afternoon, enjoy a variety of events and prizes devoted to the number eight, such as a Crazy Eights card tournament with an $88.88 gift certificate prize and eight door-prize drawings for $8.88 gift certificates. From 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., the sultry voice of Charlene Blay leads her four-piece jazz ensemble, The 2nd Editions through 5/8 time signatures and various deconstructions of the Scooby Doo theme song.
Stretching across more than a thousand acres at the foot of southern Indiana's Hoosier National Forest, Wilstem Ranch's rolling farmland is home to creeks, caves, natural-rock outcroppings, and more than 30 miles of woodland trails, marking it as an ideal family escape. A creek populated by small-mouth bass attracts local fishermen; wildflowers, native plants, and trees color the historic landscape in natural vegetation. Additionally, a variety of cabins?equipped with kitchens, hot tubs, and fireplaces?provide cozy accommodations year-round.
Then there's the zip lines. Tours send thrill-seekers flying across 4,000 feet of French Lick woodlands, experiencing unparalleled views and leaving squirrels chittering in jealousy. There are no ground landings on these canopy tours?each of the nine lines spans from platform to platform for maximum excitement.
Where prospectors once used the running waters of a river to search their hauls for gems and gold, Copperhead Creek Gem Mining Company employs a winding wooden sluice. Deputized geologists shovel scoops of raw material sourced from 12 mines into wire mesh sifters, allowing the current to carry off the dirt and reveal the colorful stones that lie within. The company also offers bags of mining rough that are likely to contain fossils and arrowheads, along with geodes that visitors can crack at home by using a hammer or throwing them really hard against a tree.
