Fall Leaves and water dudleyspinner tie dye roving
Two weeks on the road, over 2300 miles of train travel. A week of sleep to recuperate. I used to be able to sleep on the train, not anymore. It was a great trip visiting family in Cincinnati, Ohio; Washington D.C. and Fort Wayne, Indiana. We saw so many cities, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Cleveland. In Cincinnati we visited the Real Pirates exhibit. It is a traveling exhibit so if it comes to your town go see it.
The train stations in DC and Chicago and Cincinnati are huge cathedrals of capitalism. Giant domed spaces with statues and art deco architecture.
The beautiful leaves at the lake were taken at the Gene Stratton Porter homestead and gardens near Rome City, Indiana. I miss the huge trees that really change color. Kansas has the grasses that change, but the trees just mostly turn yellow. Seeing the maples and beech trees change was just spectacular!
