October in Carmel, Indiana

This past weekend, I took Gus and his sister to Indianapolis for Gus' hockey tournament.  I was so excited to find the Monon trail by the rink.  The Monon is much like the Katy trail in Missouri - a railline converted to running/biking trail.

Speaking of Monon, Depauw University and Wabash College in Indiana battle annually for the Monon Bell.  My grandfather was the coach at DePauw and had an impressive Monon win record.

Found lots of cute Craftsman homes in Carmel and some big ol' mansards.

More Monon.  And more Japanese horsetail, please.  We don't use near enough of it here in Missouri.  Love it here.
