Meet Me in Madison

Madison, Indiana that is.

We took a short trip to this quaint town on the Ohio river.

There is lots of history in this old steamboat port,
including the historic Lanier Mansion.

 Tours are available of the mansion.
This is a view from the 2nd level, looking out on the gardens and the river.

 The architecture is wonderful here, from lots of shotgun houses,

 To many duplex homes painted to appear like separate residences.

 Clifty Falls State Park is just outside the town and a great place to hike.
This is a view from the inn, looking at the Ohio River.

The town is also known for the jet boat races on the river.
Lots of fun & loud engines!

And who knew that the boats enter the water by crane!

A beautiful sunset over the Ohio river.

As the full moon rises over the bridge and our trip comes to an end.
