The Scenic Route

As most of you know we took a trip to Alabama to be there for the birth of my nephew. We decided to take a different way down south then what we normally take. I wouldn't say we got lost, as I am never really lost when I have a map. However we did not go the way we intended. In my family, this is referred to as "taking the scenic route". It was just that, very scenic. Here are some photos of the beautiful Indiana scenery.

Further down in Roann, IN is Stockdale Mill. It is a historic water powered flour mill. It sits on Eel River as well.

When visiting relatives and friends, it is a good idea to take a detour. Glad you enjoyed the trip.

I am SO behind on reading your blogs. Am loving these postings, and seeing the similarities (and differences) between our trips to the south. Amazing that we both had covered bridge experiences!

Blogger just ate my last comment so will try again! It is really amazing the similar sites we viewed on our separate trips down south. Can't believe you posted a covered bridge as well!
