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.
Richards School Park and Amberley Park
State Road 46, Oakbrook Park, and Morningside Park were the three parks we visited during week 7.
For week 6, we visited Harrison Ridge Park and Clifty Creek Park.
We visited Everroad Park and Pence Street Park in week 5.
A few years ago, Caleb got some real maple syrup from my sister for Christmas. Ever since then, we’ve become real maple syrup snobs. So it seemed like the Maple Syrup Festival would be right up our alley.
As you’ve probably gathered if you’re a regular reader of this blog, the kids enjoy hiking. So when Caleb discovered Sodalis Nature Park, he thought it would be a good Saturday afternoon activity.
Twice a year the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association hold an annual shoot in the town of Friendship Indiana. Coinciding with the shoot is the Friendship Flea Market.
While visiting Spring Mill State Park, we happened upon some cannons being fired. Since Isaac and Zoe seemed interested, Caleb thought they might enjoy a visit to Friendship during one of the two annual shoots.
Since the kids enjoyed hiking at Clifty Falls State Park last year, we thought we’d try another Memorial Day Weekend hike at Spring Mill State Park.
During week 4 for we visited Noblitt Park, Lincoln Park and Blackwell Park.
Week 2: Donner Park and Ninth Street Park.
Week 3: McCullough’s Run and Northbrook Park
