This picture is from the my 2007 Indy Sixty-Two day trip. Although the actual trip was rather spontaneous to take advantage of a warn autumn day, driving Indiana State Route 62 had been on my mind for several months. I had sampled a bit in April and the thought of someday driving more of it was made rather firm by the discovery that Car and Driver Magazine had once listed part of the route as one of its “Best Driving Roads in America”. The east end of the C & D designated section was at Corydon which I reached by taking US-42 along the south side of the Ohio River and crossing over at Louisville, Kentucky. IN-62 between Corydon and Dale was just as curvy and scenic as promised and many others, such as the people in these classic cars, were out enjoying it, too.
Trip Pic Peeks are short articles published when my world is too busy or too boring for a current events piece to be completed in time for the Sunday posting. In addition to a photo thumbnail from a completed road trip, each Peek includes a brief description of that photo plus links to the full sized photo and the trip journal it is from.
