Annie and I recently decided it would be a fun journey to attempt to visit all 92 counties in the state of Indiana. And by this, I mean do something fun/meaningful in each one – not just pass through, but actually enjoy some attraction or benefit of the particular area.
And thus our adventure was born. Here are the ground rules:
- We’re starting from scratch, as of 05/08/2011. Nothing previously visited or done within the state counts.
- In order for the trip to count, all 4 of us must go. Others may go as well, but the trip must include at least include our whole family.
- There’s no set timeline or guide for how long this will take. But we’ll endeavor to visit a new place as often as possible, to keep the travel fresh.
- We’ll probably think of more as we go.

The first weekend of November, Aunt Natalie invited us to go hiking. Caleb suggested we check out Versailles State Park.
On an unseasonably warm fall Sunday afternoon we gathered up a few friends and headed to Falls of the Ohio State Park. The fall is a great time to visit this park because the river levels are lower so more of the fossil beds are exposed.
Over Fall Break, we decided to meet up with Grandma Cindy to visit the Exotic Feline Rescue Center. Continue reading
After years of talking about The Little Italy Festival, we finally made it there this year.
