Ride around Frances Slocum Lake

Saturday, August 22nd, 2009

Between working and getting ready to move back to Indiana, I haven’t had much time for riding. I’ve managed to get a few rides in, but I’ve had even less time for blogging.

Before I forget, here are some shots from a ride I did the other day around Frances Slocum Lake. I love late summer wildflowers, with all the yellows and golds and oranges.

    Very nice!
    Where’s your front fender?

  2. Bill Lambert Says:

    Great photos. If you’re moving back to the Bloomington area, you’ll have much the same scenery.

    By the way, Francis Slocum is buried in Peru, IN.

    Mike: When I took these photos, I was waiting for VO to send a replacement fender. I’ll post about that soon, but I have the replacement now.

    Bill: Thanks. Bloomington is my hometown, so I’m very familiar. The hills there are small compared to what we have here, but it is still hilly and very scenic there.

    We had never heard of Frances Slocum until we moved to this area. There’s a state park named after her here, where she was kidnapped by Indians. We have read about how she was later found in Peru, IN, and intend to visit the site there sometime to complete the story.
