After our trip to D.C. and ShenandoahNationalPark, Choppy and I spent time at home. It was nice to be there and taking care of various issues around the house, as well as having a few nights in my own bed. Choppy, as usual, ignored her $200 bed in favor of sleeping on the old and somewhat ratty bedspread I used while in college.
While we were home, I had to make a trip to Bloomington. I dragged Choppy with me, so that we could do a little hiking before heading back home (which is a cheaper option than my normal Bloomington side trip to the outlet malls in Edinburgh. Note: The shops aren’t really that close to Bloomington, but outlet malls are like Sarah crack and so I go out of my way to shop there). Our hiking trip took Choppy and I to Brown County State Park, which has a boring name but beautiful scenery, for a quick hike on a hot afternoon. Some pictures from the trip are below.
(And, for those of you keeping track of this sort of thing, I am officially WAY behind on posting about our travels. As in, we’ve taken an entire major trip to the East Coast and I’ve gone to Canada for a week since this happened. I’m hoping to work through the backlog quickly in the next couple weeks, as we are headed to Alaska at the end of July and I would like to be more or less current on posting by that time).
