This was the last photo of the three-day Huntington outing October 2004. I had thought I might at best make it as far as the Michigan border, so Myra wouldn’t have to come so far to get me. I stopped at Ligonier, though. She may have been visiting in Shipshewana for part of the day, [...]
This is another photo of the Nuck House. This is the home of the man the Nuck’s worked for, Chief Francis Lafontaine. His name in Miami was Topeah, which is said to mean something like Frost on Leaves or Frost on Bushes. This house, too, was moved from its original location. It was in the [...]

After leaving the Turkey Creek valley I did stop for a few photos on my way to the Wabash River (on October 10, 2004). This was taken a couple of hours after leaving that road along Turkey Creek. Just looking at these photos makes me wish the snow would go away so I could go [...]
Turkey Creek is on the west end of Brushy Prairie. The photo in the previous entry was taken on the east side. Not that it’s a big place. After my early morning photo expedition, I had gone back to the campground where Myra was impatiently waiting in the cold. We broke camp and went to [...]
