Springs in the Fall
Then There Was One
The four car caravan of yesterday started today as three, then two, and
crossed into Kentucky at one quarter strength. There was more scenic
two-lane and a pleasant surprise in Santa Claus. The other caravaners
missed out on some good eating and listening.
As promised, this was a day of cool roads. Trees were colorful but there
was still a surprising and disappointing amount of green. A great tour of
West Baden Springs Hotel filled out the day.
This is another drive born of the
Road Magazine Forum. There have been other discussions about a visit
to the recently reopened West Baden Springs Hotel in southern Indiana but this
time, when moderator Pat Bremer tossed out the idea of an autumn drive
there, he got some takers. Various scheduling conflicts moved the date from
mid-October to early November but the changing of the leaves has also been
delyed so it looks to be fairly colorful after all. So, on November's
first weekend, some folks will gather in Indianapolis to drive in cool
temperatures on some cool roads lined by cool trees to visit a cool hotel.
We're not rich enough to stay there (Although that would be cool.) but we
think we can afford the tour.
