Travels back to Indiana...

Candace and I travelled back to Indiana on Monday, 24th August. We drove through many pretty places and took our time on the drive back. Our highlight was stopping at the Humpback Covered Bridge near Covington, Virginia. Other interesting stops included the Natural Bridge in Virginia and the town of White Sulphur Springs - and the historic Greenbrier hotel - in West Virginia. We even detoured a fair distance so I could set foot in Ohio - another state - later in the day. We only arrived back home at about 23h00 (11pm) in the evening!

 Butterflies relaxing in the sun.
 We didn't have enough time to go into the actual site of the Natural Bridge, and so we drove into the hills to try and catch a sight. You can just about make it out through the trees here.
 Pretty Virginia farmland and rolling hills.
