Besides heading southeast for a short trip to Savannah, Hilton Head and Augusta, Old Town Waverly Park and Pleasant Acres Nature Park in Jamestown were my Indiana wanderings for the past month.

At Waverly we were able to take the two (2) mile out and back trail located along the White River in northeastern Morgan County. This trail is a scenic, very comfortable hike. A beautiful warm March day made the hike even more enjoyable. While hiking, I was able to try out one of our new toys, a 360° Camera. This contraption is very similar to what is used for street view in Google Maps. Take a look at the video. You can pause the video and take a look around the area!

Pleasant Acres Nature Park in Jamestown, a community on the Hendricks County / Boone County line, is a small but intriguing park. The park has a ½ mile perimeter trail with interior trails located on either side of the bisecting creek through the park. The trails are paved and are easy and allow for a quite peaceful hike.

After visiting Jamestown, wandering through rural Boone, Montgomery and Hendricks Counties were on the agenda. New Ross, North Salem, Lizton, Maplewood, and my favorite – Montclair were visited. There is nothing like spending some time on a Sunday afternoon driving in rural Indiana listening to oldies radio and enjoying the sights and sounds of spring.

Where should I travel next? Pass along your ideas. Keep up the wandering!
