Photography and Sightseeing:The LaRue-Pine Hills Research Natural Area is a nature lover’s dream offering beautiful colors during the fall, budding and blooming plants in the spring and opportunities to photograph many species of reptiles and amphibians along the “snake road” at the base of the 350 feet bluffs during their spring and fall migrations.
