Fall 2006 Color Gathering - Turkey Run State Park, Indiana
Our 2006 Fall Color Gathering took place 10/20-10/22/2006 at Turkey Run State Park in Indiana. This park is NW of Indianapolis. The colors were perfect. And, the park is located in Parke County, IN, covered bridge capital of the world. We were there the last weekend of the annual week-long Covered Bridge Festival.

Lisa, Josie, Shadow & Steve Bowman and their 1966 HiLander
Steve has replaced the front window with a non-Scotty window -
the original was too far gone

Dinette - very cute retro fabriced pillows and love the black & white checks

Our bonfire, at Rob & Nancy's. We're eating our potluck.
