Indiana is celebrating is 200th birthday this year.
A torch is being carried through each of the 92 counties as part of the celebration.
As luck would have it, we were there when the torch came through Madison.
Local citizens carried the torch along the riverfront park,
Down to the river, where it was loaded on to a jet boat for a lap on the water,
And finally handed off to a horseback rider,
who carried it up to the courthouse.
Madison really knows how to celebrate!
Madison, Indiana that is.
We took a short trip to this quaint town on the Ohio river.
including the historic Lanier Mansion.
This is a view from the 2nd level, looking out on the gardens and the river.
This is a view from the inn, looking at the Ohio River.
Lots of fun & loud engines!
