Goin' places

Our Venturers had a fine cool-weather campout this weekend. We drove down to Lynnville Park and set up for the night, then attended a meeting of the Evansville Astronomical Society at their observatory. Got to look through their big telescope, too.

Next day it was off to Angel Mounds to walk the archaeological site and ogle a couple of museum displays. We had extra time, so we drove over to Wesselmann Woods and hiked the trails for a bit. Then it was off to Shyler's Barbecue for supper. We got home last night about 8:30.

Tons o' fun.
