Indianapolis–The State Capitol of Indiana

 

Getting from Cave City KY to Indianapolis was quite something. . .

busy, busy, busy Interstate 65 between Louisville KY and Indianapolis IN. . .plus road construction. . .FUN!

Interstate 65 is a busy, busy, busy thoroughfare. . .

We had been told it was Derby Week in Louisville

by our very kind RV friends John and Judy Long,

and that traffic going through downtown Louisville

was always crazy. . .add to that Detour Signs,

Alternate Route 65 signs, and Major Construction Ahead signs,

we chose to follow the Alternate Route, and bypass Louisville. . .

more Indiana road construction, with the barrels all the way over in our driving lane. . .lovely

doesn’t this look fun. . .barrels IN OUR LANE!

so while getting there was something of a trial,

we did have a  very, very pleasant overnight stay in Indianapolis. . .

Summer Trip 2014, Indiana (35)

at the lovely Lake Haven Retreat just minutes off the Loop in Indianapolis

easy pull though level sites. . .a little close to the neighbor but not bad. . .

Summer Trip 2014, Indiana (36)

we thought this was a little unusual. . .

in these back in sites across from us. . .the motorhomes pull in forward. . .

I guess because the utilities are on a shared pole? ? ? hmmmm. . .

anyway, for an overnite, we only hooked up the electric, so setup only took minutes. . .

Indiana State Capitol Building

and off we went to see the State Capitol of Indiana in all it’s glory

the approach to the Capitol Building - everything is built in very close

it’s another of those difficult to photograph Capitol Buildings

where everything is built in very close. . .

no way we could get a pic of us in front of it. . .

but I have included some inside pics

of the rotunda and the atrium in the album below. . .

 

our next stop. . .Michigan!

see you there,

Janice and Dave
