As always, when checking into the RV park, I had picked up several brochures of attractions in the Indianapolis area. One of them had a picture of a beautiful waterfall, but no indication of its name or location. A quick Google for "waterfalls near Indianapolis" turned up Cataract Falls, complete with directions. After visiting Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the morning and having a spot of lunch, I headed for Cataract about twenty miles outside town.
Once off the Interstate, I began to pass beautiful fall foliage and stopped occasionally to take a few pictures.
When I arrived at Upper Cataract Falls, I could see the water level wasn't nearly as high as in the brochure photo. Still, it was a lovely scene and I enjoyed walking around the park, checking out different viewpoints. There are actually two separate falls at this location.

Lower Cataract Falls is only about 15 feet high, compared to 30 feet at Upper Cataract Falls.
