Stopover in Indiana

I was scheduled to drive 400 miles today, so I needed to leave the air force museum a lot sooner than I hoped. But driving that far in one sitting makes you really miss some cool stuff, and I wasn't about to let that happen.


I decided to take a stopover in Indianapolis for the afternoon. I set my GPS to take me to the Indy Racetrack to check it out, but as I drove around I found more to do:


The city has a neat-looking canal, and the water was a lot cleaner than the ones in Amsterdam. I ran into a kayak rental shop and decided to take a boat ride on the canal for an hour.

After a fun and refreshing ride, I headed over to the Indy Speedway. It was closed so I drove around until I found a way to see inside the track. I'm not into racing but the track itself is impressively big:



On the way to St. Louis I ran into some pretty powerful thunderstorms. Only temporary, luckily:
